This is a great addition to our community. Seasonal local produce, dairy and meat. You can feel good physically and mentally by helping the growers, your family and our environment. My kids love to shop there and we have tried so many more vegetables this summer that we all eat since they get to pick their own.

Consistent food vendors with a wide variety of products at reasonable (for organic/organic practices) prices. Every changing non-food vendors makes a trip to the West End Farmer's Market an outing!

There is just so much to love about West End Farmers' Market. I love the fresh produce because it makes me become creative with my cooking. (I buy almost no processed food|) Every week the offerings are different. The new potatoes were so delicious. You could just boil them and eat them like a snack. Tomatoes were perfect for homemade fresh tomato sauce to go with eggplant. The peaches were perfect. Eating fresh and local is the way to stay healthy. And the artisan products bring me back for that wonderful oatmeal soap and other offerings.

There are many vendors who offer products grown/produced using organic practices. We also enjoy the many craft vendors with beautifully handcrafted goods. A manager is always on-site, answering questions and assuring that market practices are upheld.

I love showing my kids where the vegetables really come from, the farmers. We also love getting fresh meat and bison. Plus showing my kids that people can make a living actually producing something they made is a lifelong lesson I hope to pass on. We LOVE the new market and it has been incorporated into my weekly grocery shop, I just swing by the market first.

Besides having fresh food so conveniately close by I feel a real sice of community. When you have vendors take such pride in their products and produce, it attracts similar like people. I cannot wait to watch it grow.

I love having this market so close to home and hope that support for the Gayton Rod location will grow - I find it well worth the extra cost knowing that the food is freshly grown and not treated with any hormones,insecticides,etc.

The West End Farmers' Market makes the weekends the best ever -- it's the only time I really get to enjoy cooking. I plan my menus around what is at the market. This summer has been all about fresh veges on the grill, crisp salads, and wonderful fresh fruit desserts. Nothing processed! Yummy and healthy!!
