We established our public farmer's market in 1992 in order to provide a local center for our area farmers with a place to retail their produce. In addition we were interested in bringing more business to our downtown area and allow direct contact between producers and consumers. We are a year-round market, and our outdoor season runs from the end of May through October. Indoor location TBA from November - May with 20+ vendors, including 3 farms growing in high tunnels.

It's a small community whose market started out with a few vendors 2-3 years ago. Now there are about 50 vendors along the street each Saturday morning.... [more]
