Bring some light into your life by foregoing the grocery store and shop locally for your essentials! Your local farms + food businesses will be here tomorrow to provide you with fresh produce + food products. Get fresh greens + root vegetables, meats, cheeses, bread, juices, hard cider + more, all while staying a safe distance from others. Our vendors are working extremely hard to bring their products to you while ensuring your health + safety at the market. Now more than ever our farmers + community depend on the operations of our market! Our market community comes together to increase food access + promote health + connection for all. During this time, we are finding that our role is crucial to continue to work towards these goals. As always we ask everyone to follow our guidelines + safety precautions so that we may continue serving our community. Take a look at the list below to see all that will be available tomorrow! We look forward to seeing you, from a distance. We are here Saturdays 10AM-1PM now through April.

Friendly reminder: Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we are taking the necessary precautions to ensure the safety and health of all. 6ft distances have been marked off along the market stalls to direct people where to stand while making their purchases. All of our vendors will be located outside and spaced out to alleviate crowd buildup and allow for proper social distancing. Vendors participating in our Saturday markets are essential food businesses only. Please allow vendors to assist you when making your purchases and avoid touching/handling any products. Let the vendor gather your items and bag them for you. In order to ensure safety precautions are being taken, transactions may be longer than expected. Please be patient while making a purchase. Relax and enjoy the fresh air! Also, be sure to WASH your PRODUCE and BAGS once you get home from the market. Per CDC guidance, we will ask our staff and vendors not to come to market if they are experiencing any of the COVID-19 defined symptoms. We will send all those exhibiting any symptoms home. We ask the same of our market patrons. Thank you!
