The Spring Equinox is almost here + with 60-degree days like yesterday, we all have warmer weather on our minds! Even with this Spring-like weather, our Winter Market will run until the end of April and we are grateful to consistently have around 20 local vendors for you to shop from!

We'd like to send out a heartfeldt thanks to the amazing community members who came out, ate soup, and shopped at the Market for our Fifth Annual Soup @ FSFM Fundraiser!! We're also incredibly grateful for the restaurants who donated the soups and the vendors who donated to the raffle in support of the Market + this beautiful food community. We sold over 200 soup tickets (in less than 2 hours!), had 11 soups donated + served,  and raised over $2400 to help support the Market! Your financial support helps keep the Market open ALL YEAR LONG, giving this amazing community access to local food even through the colder months. Thank you!!

If you want to continue supporting the Market, we have so many fun ways to do that. Check out our Event page on our website for the upcoming events, volunteer opportunities + fundraisers for the next couple months.
