As we remain open, we are doing everything we can to take preventative measures in order to keep everyone safe + healthy during this time. We are also a GREAT alternative to the grocery store because our vendors are located outside + there are never empty shelves! And what better way to spend your day than by practicing safe social distancing while you shop local products! Your local farm + food businesses will here tomorrow to provide you with all the quarantine food essentials. Our vendors are taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe + right now they need your support! So if you need to stock up this weekend, skip the empty shelves, set down the toilet paper + join us at the farmers market! Take a look at the list below to see what will be available tomorrow! We look forward to seeing you. We are here Saturdays 10AM-1PM now through April.

Friendly 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 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!
