Who we are

Our Mission Statement is to:

What is a Farmers’ Market?
There are 3 Golden Rules
for Farmers' Markets and their stallholders:
(1) A Farmers' Market is a food market
(e.g. no arts, craft, bric-a-brac) with some exceptions for plants and flowers.
(2) This food is produced within a defined local area
(each market can define their local region)
(3) The vendor must be directly involved in the growing or production process
of the food (e.g. no middle men, on-sellers, wholesalers, retailers, etc... )
