Brick Sales || Purchase your uniquely engraved brick today!


Quick reminder: All of our vendors will be located outside and spaced out to alleviate crowd buildup and allow for proper social distancing. Please allow vendors to assist you when making your purchase 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 defined symptoms. We will send all those exhibiting any symptoms home. We ask the same of our market patrons. Please stay tuned as we communicate the best practices in hygiene that we are actively developing with the local health department. These will be communicated regularly through our media channels and posted at market.

We are all facing unusual + unfortunate circumstances right now. But we must support each other during this time of uncertainty. That is why it is important to us, our vendors + our community that we stay open! Many industries are being put at risk during this crisis, but we can change that by coming to the market. Your local farm + food businesses need your support now more than ever! Not only is it good for them but it is also good for you! Buying local ensures that you are getting the freshest produce, meat + dairy! Don't fight over the last onion at the supermarket. Instead, take a nice stroll down our pavilion + choose from a wide variety of locally-grown + made products. Stock up on dried beans, jams, frozen pasties, premade meals + of course delicious fresh veggies! We are here Saturdays from 10AM-1PM now through April.
