Two nonprofits will have booths at this week’s market: Cub Scouts with their annual popcorn sale and Young Life.

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!
