What better way to kick-off your weekend than to join us at the market and get your grocery shopping done! 40 vendors will be attending this Saturday at our open-air market! Come support the local food community during this time of need. Although the market is different than past seasons, it is still a calming grocery experience. Enjoy the fresh air and socially distanced presence from others in your community! Our vendors will be here with a variety of fresh greens, rhubarb, radishes, mushrooms, jams, fish, eggs, breads + baked goods, cold-pressed juice + SO much more!

Please keep in mind that EVERYONE (even the kiddos) are counted towards our capacity limit. We ask, if possible, that you limit your shopping party to 1 person per family. At this time, we also ask that you do not gather as a social activity. Please come to the market prepared to make your trip quick + efficient. Volunteers will be guiding people in our two lines to enter the market. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Take a look at the list below to see what will be available tomorrow! Take a look at our ROLL CALL + Market Map on our Facebook or Instagram! We look forward to seeing you, from a distance. We are here Wednesday, Friday + Saturday 8AM-2PM now through October.
