Vegetable starts may include herbs, peppers, tomatoes, beets, cucumbers, broccoli, okra, eggplant, and lettuces accompanied by small fig trees, blackberry and strawberry plants. Also find colorful bedding plants.

Our farmers use various growing methods. To clarify, our website notes their growing methods on each farmer’s description page. Look for Certified Organic, Sustainably Grown, or Conventional growing methods noted at the end of their descriptions.

We are a local, seasonal farmers market, meaning that our farmers bring only what is ripening in their fields this week and some produce has a short growing season. Eating with the seasons takes education, awareness and patience! For a chart of produce that is in season now, click here.
