If you are making a grocery trip this weekend, skip the store and get out in the open air! Come shop for your local fresh produce and food products at the market during Main Season. We will have around 40 vendors tomorrow ready to provide you with a variety of fresh greens + root vegetables, mushrooms, jams, meats, cheeses, breads, cold-pressed juice, smoked fish, hard cider + MUCH MORE! We cannot wait for the day that we can gather as a community again, but until then, our focus is to provide access to fresh local products + support the viability of our farms and local businesses during this time of need.

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

Take a look at the list below to see what will available tomorrow! If you are wondering WHO will be at the market, take a look at our ROLL CALL 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.
