Busy this Saturday? Shop early for Mothers Day and be celebration ready!
Celebrate mamas and all our nurturing ones with beautiful spring bouquets, and the freshest bounty from local, sustainable farms! Catch Wild Scallions Farm, Harland’s Creek Farm, and Hurtgen Meadows for wonderful arrangements of spring flowers while you pick up some of their tasty veggies. Hua Nong Ecorganic Farm and Lyon Farm will be here with an amazing variety of bok choy, sweet and tender Chinese zucchini, lettuce, watermelon radishes, strawberries, tomatoes, asparagus, and lots more.
The folks at 321 Coffee had a great time at market last week and they’re coming back to share their brews this week! 321 Coffee will be a guest vendor this season at the Wednesday markets and will be bringing decaf coffee our afternoons have been craving, along with their other in-house roasted, ethically sourced coffees.
Pastured Meat & Eggs Available at Wednesday Market!
New this season, guest vendor Bull City Farm will be joining us every Wednesday bringing eggs, pasture-raised meat, and dog treats. Believe us, your pups will love them! And keep an eye out next week for a special, super easy marshmallow recipe Samantha will be sharing with us!

Looking for honey from local beehives? Help those spring allergies by picking up honey from Sheri Gant of Tulip Poplar Honey! Woman owned, tended, and harvested, Tulip Poplar Honey will be here every week to share the bounty of the beehives! Raw honey, candles, lotion bars, and more.
And, of course, we will have a scrumptious assortment of local bakeries – Loaf, Ninth Street Bakery, and Strong Arm Baking – here to fill your kitchen with artisan loaves, buns, granola, croissants, cookies, and even pizza.
