Who Should Participate & Why?

Agricultural Harvest: From farmers who raise, cultivate and harvest their produce, herbs, flowers and nursery crops to beekeepers, egg & dairy producers. This is an excellent opportunity for growers to sell their locally grown fruits and vegetables. People who attend Farmers Markets typically are interested in supporting a healthy lifestyle and want to buy fresh produce that is grown locally.

Artist & Crafters: From people who craft with their own hands the products they offer for sale at the Market. Making things by hand seems to be an art left in the past, but there are many who understand the value of a quality hand-made item and they will be on hand to see what you have to offer.

Prepared/Processed Food: From those who offer fresh food products they have processed themselves into products for sale. These are ready-to-eat or pre-packaged items. People love to eat! People need to eat! You have food for people. People will buy your food.

Locally Grown Musicians: Musicians looking to promote your event performance services, an upcoming show or just looking to get in front of a crowd are welcome to participate
