Mission Statement

Reminiscent of the market days of our forebears, our goal is to provide:

  • A community building event
  • An opportunity for residents to improve their nutritional intake
  • Support for local farmers to help them avoid selling their fields for development and to keep a viable local food source.

What is a Farmers' Market?

A Farmers' Market is an adventure. There are always interesting and unexpected items. It is also an education - you will undoubtedly learn something about varieties of produce, what grows well, when, under what conditions, and how to select, store and prepare them. Farmers love questions! Please ask - it's part of the fun. We have a combination of organic and conventional farms represented. Also there are educational booths, entertainment, and craft vendors.

The basics

Come early. Our market closes precisely at noon so our vendors can get home to their families. Bring cash and your own bags.
