The High Springs Farmer's Market is a great way to promote local businesses, agriculture, and commerce in our downtown community!

As a local resident I want to support all local projects but I LOVE our Farmers Market for not only the obvious reasons such as getting locally grown products but also as a way to see friends and reconnect!

It is great to have such easy access to fresh organic items and know that it supports local growers and their families.

We have many Farmer's Markets within a 50 mile radius and although we are a small market, we have the honor of being the only Farmer's Market in Florida that has an EBT program where Food Stamp recipients can swipe their card for tokens and spend some of their Food Stamp allowance on fresh fruits, vegetables and other food stuffs. Our Market is also innovative, in that it has the Main Street program sponsoring a High Springs Community Information Booth each week, where shoppers and visitors at the Market can obtain information on the not for profit groups in the area including info on their benefits and activies. While our location is beautiful and serene, it is a little off the main path of High Springs and we are constantly seeking ways to make the Market more visible to the passing public, including floating vegetable shaped balloons and having individuals dress as farmers and stand on street corners to promote the market. Our most recent innovation was to change our Market hours to accomodate the working people in our community who could not make it to the Market during regular hours. We have extended our hours to 7:00 PM and have had a wonderful response to this provision. The Farmer's Market is vital to our community and the Market volunteers work very hard to keep it thriving.

Since our market received an infusion of volunteers from our Main Street organization the market has expanded both farmers/vendors and visitors. Downtown comes alive on Thursdays with colorful tents, friendly vendors, locals and visitors. The variety and quality assures return visitors week after week. Seasonal produce makes its way into local restaurants as another benefit of having fresh, local and available produce just steps away. The High Springs Farmers Market is a program of the City of High Springs and managed by the Main Street Program.
