      During the vicious chill that is February, there is nothing better than the idea of a lazy weekend spent at home, sipping a warm beverage while watching the snow fall. The best way to top it off is with a warm meal made with fresh, local produce. Making meals at home is not only better for you but also a prominent way to promote change in the food system. Choosing to cook your meals, especially with local ingredients, allows you to control what you buy and where your food comes from, which encourages better food to be produced in the marketplace. No matter what your plans are for the weekend, be sure to stop by the Market and support the local vendors who show up, snow or shine, to provide you with the best and most nutritious food in town. Nourish not only your body, but your community, and relationships at home, by shopping at the farmers market. Not sure what to cook? Ask your farmer for recipe suggestions!

      Take a look at the list below to see which products will be available tomorrow! If you are wondering WHO will be at the market, take a look at our ROLL CALL on our Facebook or Instagram! The market is open for Second Season on Saturdays 10AM-1PM now through April 24, 2021.
