Holiday Season

As the seasons begin to turn from Fall to Winter, so do the offerings at the farmers market. Our farmers change and what they offer also changes during the winter season. Our crafters become more plentiful this time of year offering tons of homemade items just in time for the holiday season.

Why shop small this holiday season?

The holiday season officially kicks off the Friday after Thanksgiving, with special shopping hours 8AM to 4PM on Friday November 25th, and a longer Saturday Market day in celebration of Small Business Saturday, November 26, 2022.

Each of our vendors operate a small business. Some of our vendors sell at multiple locations, some vendors sell on-line, and some only sell at our market, but each offers uniquely homemade products, whether through their growing skills, baking skills, or crafting skills each vendor shares the products of a small business. So why should you support small businesses this holiday season?

  • Stimulate Local Economies
  • Reduce the Carbon Foot Print
  • Create more Jobs
  • Give Back to the Local Community
  • Great Customer Service – Small Business Owners know their products well.
  • Nurture Innovation and Growth – Small Business Owners need to stand out, so they are always looking for new ideas to make that happen.
  • Support the American Dream – I always wanted to………
