Join us on our 10-acre campus every Saturday to find an exclusive selection of locally grown, caught and cultivated foods and other products available to sample and purchase. Enjoy live entertainment by local musicians and fun activities for kids, gardening classes and live cooking by local chefs. The GreenMarket hosts neighbors and small growers who bring seasonal, very limited crops to market. Do you have fruit from a few backyard trees, a good tomato crop from the kitchen garden, or some berries gathered in an outing? If so, we’d like to help you bring it to the community. Barter is encouraged, trade your small crop for market items you may need!
