  • Farmers Market: A note from the Market: 
    Hello community! You may have seen some of the updates to our page and noticed some major changes. Our vendors had a meeting this week and made a difficult but needful decision to close the Farmer's Market for the remainder of the season. As you all know, the weather has been absolutely unforgiving this year and all of our vendors are feeling it's effects. We felt it was necessary to regroup and use the rest of the year to prepare for our best season yet in 2019. Rest assured, we will be back and better than ever! Lots of changes will be made (including a rain-or-shine policy) and we can't wait to come back with a bang! We hope you understand and that you'll join us for our big kick-off market, hopefully in April next year.

    Meanwhile, your favorite vendors are still around!
