Community Impact Report

Thanks for a great Season

Thank you for all the community support!!

A huge thank you to our community sponsors, partners, volunteers, vendors, and customers.  2019 has been one of our most successful seasons yet and we could not have done it without you. It was our second year of the Kids Market Bucks Club and we served and educated over 515 children throughout the season about the importance of fresh foods and a healthy lifestyle. We have continued to grow our vendor base in hopes of providing our community with even more fresh, nutritious, locally grown options for their families. We are already looking forward to 2020 and hope to see you each Thursday May through mid-October for more farmers market fun!
