Good morning!

Well, guys, that’s a wrap on our outdoor market! If you weren’t able to make it on Friday, you missed a wonderful Fall Finale! Cheers to Michelle Pridgen for another spectacular market season!

There’s a really wide variety of produce on the market this week! Start looking through your favorite fall recipes and order your ingredients on the market before 8 pm tomorrow night! Eating nutrient dense foods fresh from the market not only supports our local economy, but will provide you and your family with better health and energy! It’s a win/win!

Market is OPEN for Oct. 18th pickup!


Good evening!

It’s been a remarkable outdoor market season and we are all a little sad to see it end on Friday. Luckily, you can still take advantage of all of the wonderful products our vendors have to offer on the online market! A few words of wisdom, be sure to check the market as soon as you can on Wednesday nights, produce starts to go fast! Also, be sure to check back throughout the week because new stuff is often listed later in the week.
