The opening date will be Thursday April 7th from 4-7 pm and the market will run every Thursday through October 27th. We will pick back up in Spring of 2017.
The Market is a membership organization, and the farmers and artisans help run the Market. The Market membership meets annually to approve Market rule changes and to plan out the new season. The directors are farmers and artisans members of the Market, and they meet regularly.
Everything sold at Market must be grown or produced by the farmers and artisans. The board of directors regularly inspects farm businesses to ensure integrity. The directors can decide if certain products do or do not meet market criteria. The practice of growing heirloom and native, beneficial plants using pesticide free techniques in encouraged. Additionally, the business owner must be present each week to sell their goods, or have an approved representative.
All of the sellers at Market live and produce their goods within 50 miles of Market. In fact, the average distance that food travels to Market is just 20 mile; you cannot get more local.
