And if you haven’t “liked” us on facebook yet, please do! It’s where you’ll be sure to know what’s in season and who’s got it and what’s going on at the market.
We are a “Producer Only” market, so you can talk to the folks who grow and make what they sell.
You’ll find the freshest fruits and vegetables (many familiar, many unusual!), pastured, all-natural eggs, beef, pork, chicken, lamb, goat, duck, and turkey, a range of homemade baked goods and jams, plus herbs, specialty wools, honey, and more.
