good stuff and admire their precedent-setting pioneer spirit in establishing the market here


At the grocery store, it can be hard to find locally-grown items, so it's great to have the market close by and have fresh-from-the-farm produce!


The fruit and vegetables are fresh, the prices are right and dealing with the workers has always been a pleasant experience.
