The farmers market is a GREAT alternative to the grocery store, especially during this pandemic. Get some fresh air + practice safe social distancing as you shop for fresh local products. Buying directly from farmers means that your food is going through fewer channels of distribution. This ensure that your produce is picked at the peak of freshness, giving it the best quality and nutrient content! Pickup fresh greens + root vegetables, meats, cheeses, bread, soup mixes, farm fresh eggs, hard cider + more! We know that the market serves as an incredible place of community HOWEVER to help serve our community safely, we discourage gathering as a social activity at this time. Please come to the market prepared to make your trip quick + efficient. Our volunteers will be guiding people in line to enter the market. We ask for your cooperation + paitence. Take a look at the list below to see what will be available tomorrow! 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. At this time, ALL vendors are required to wear masks and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND that EVERYONE who comes to the market to wear one as well. Please visit our COVID-19 response page in order to view + properly follow ALL of our guidelines. Thank you for your support, patience and understanding through this process. We look forward to seeing you, from a distance.
