The farmer's market is a wonderful place for our community to meet. Friends meet eachother at the market. Children and adults alike get to meet the people who grow the food, make the bread, and cut the flowers. The market also gives local growers a chance to sell their goods to people in their community! Our farmers market is an asset to our town!

We have been going to the market since it opened because the produce is so much better than what you find in the stores. Add to that the wonderful vendors and the variety of goods to be found each week, and you know that we will be returning every week for a long time.
