In recent years, farmers markets have been undergoing a renaissance of sorts. Listed below are some of the reasons for this as well as some of the goals of the Downtown Farmers Market:

  • Farmers Markets provide a connection to farm and country life
  • Farmers Markets provide an opportunity for the customer to talk directly with the farmer who who raised, grown and produced the food
  • Farmers Markets support small family farms whose continued existence depends on selling directly to the consumer
  • Farmers Markets provide community access to Local, fresh from-the-farm products
  • Farmers Markets provide an open-air market where people meet to visit with friends and neighbors
