Farmers Market: Visitor information


Live music

Every Saturday at the outdoor and winter markets we welcome local folk, bluegrass, and classic country musicians to play from 10 a.m. -12 noon. Dance, tap your feet, or simply sit and enjoy the music in the seating section or around the pond.

The application form for 2020 featured musicians will be available soon.  We typically book musicians in February for the upcoming season.

Community booths

Each week, we offer 1-3 non-profit, small business community booth space at the market. We strive to partner with organizations that fit with the mission of the market while working to educate our customers on how to live a healthy lifestyle. Community booths are not permitted to sell anything.
