Market is OPEN for Jan. 15th pickup!


Good evening,

Time to place your Online Market order! We had a great week back, let’s keep up the momentum! As shoppers and supporters of the Market, you all are helping our vendors live the life they want to live! Another added bonus is keeping your dollars in the local economy. How cool is that?

To Shop: Independence Farmers Market.

Our first workshop of the season is happening THIS Saturday! Learn to pack a 21/2 X 5 foot raised bed with a huge amount of vegetables! It’s easy to multiply by 5 so this works for larger gardens too. This is an interactive vegetable growing workshop for all skill levels. We’ll meet at the Grayson LandCare/IFM office at 104 Courthouse Street, Saturday January 11th from 9 am to noon. Cost is $15, pay at the door, and light refreshments will be served. Planting dates, spacing, interplanting and succession plantings will be addressed. Using information from the best national and local gardeners you’ll learn to apply these techniques to a single raised bed or a full-sized market garden. We’ll break into groups and design gardens for maximum production. We’ll also have our favorite tools, books and catalogs on display. Start planning for a successful garden now. The class is limited to 30 people. Please email Michelle Pridgen at to register.

Our Grow Vegetables II workshop will be happening on Feb. 8th. Sign up now!

Thank you for supporting the Independence Farmers Market!
