What do the vendors sell? We tailor our vendors to sell a wide variety of items. These include: fresh vegetables, artisan goods, fresh fruit, pastries, cut flowers, eggs, bread, honey, maple syrup, beef, pork, and poultry.

What makes your market special? Our market is special because it is a grower’s only market, which means that all our vendors have to produce 100% of the product that they sell, and the vendors working at the table must work at the farm/studio/kitchen. We also are ultra-local — all of our farms and producers are limited to a 30 mile radius (as the crow flies) from the farmers market location.
