Opening Day is Finally Here!

To market we go on this beautiful day  – Join us from 4pm to 7pm for the launch of the 2018 farmers market season!

We have lots of fun activities planned, including a special Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 4pm with Mayor Wheeler, our local sponsors, and other community guests.

We will also be hosting our 2nd Annual “Dress Like Your Favorite Farmer” costume contest and parade. Come to the market at 4pm dressed like your favorite farmer. Prize categories include Best Kids Costume, Best Canine Costume, and Best Overall Costume. The parade and contest will commence directly after the ribbon cutting ceremony at 4pm. Don’t be late!

Make sure to stick around as we will be launching our new Kids Market Bucks Club. Kids 3-13yrs will can take part in May’s theme – “The Importance of Bees” where they will learn all about bees and their role in our food system. Kids that complete the activity will be issued $4 in Kids Market Bucks to spend on fruits, veggies and edible plant starts at our farm vendors.

And as always, we offer the Fresh Bucks matching program. For every $5 in EBT a SNAP customer takes out at market they will receive $2 extra in Fresh Bucks to purchase even more fresh fruits & veggies.

There are a lot of exciting things happening at market this season – We hope you will join us!
