Join Us Today And Shop Local!

As Summer comes to a close the market is still bursting with the fruits of our local farmers’ labor.

Join us this Thursday during our Fall hours from 3:30pm to 6:30pm to shop local and stock up on all your favorite farm fresh products.

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.
