Enjoy the flavors & colors of winter on Saturday, January 26!

We’re incredibly grateful to our farmers’ market community during the winter months. Thanks to you, our vendors have a vibrant marketplace where they can sell their products year round. Right now some of our favorite produce can be found at the market, including colorful root veggies, deep greens and lettuces, and much more. Swing by to see what’s in season and to enjoy the flavors and vibrant colors of the winter months.

As you know, many of our families, friends and neighbors are feeling the effects of the government shutdown. We want to help the best way we know how – through nutritious local food and a caring community. If you are a SNAP/EBT recipient, we are here to support you by expanding our Double Bucks program. Stop by the Info Table to get your tokens and talk to staff about what additional support is available. To our neighbors who are furloughed government employees, we’re opening up our Cash Match program to you until the shutdown is over. Please bring your government ID to the Info Table to get started. We appreciate our community and are here to nourish you and your families. If you have questions, please e-mail or call us and we’re happy to chat about these opportunities with you.
