The Summer/Winter People’s Market is a farmers’ market for local growers and producers; an incubator for locally-made, sustainable crafts; and a gathering space for the community to celebrate local and regional, good, clean and fair food.
The People’s Market is a vital aspect of the local food system because it allows farmers, ranchers and value-added food producers to sell direct to consumers. Direct to consumer sales help to strengthen the connection between local food and community, provide transparency in farming and ranching practices, and create cost savings for both growers and consumers by eliminating intermediate supply chain and distribution costs.
We welcome community members and visitors to take advantage of the opportunity to shop at the People’s Market, purchase nutrient dense food and sustainable goods, and contribute directly to the local food economy.
