We want to bring you deeper into the life of this market, so that you feel even more connected to it. If we were to show you the math equation of how the market came to be, it looks like this:
organic call to action + conversations + hesitations + creative urges so loud that the only way to quiet them is to feed them with brainstorm meeting after brainstorm meeting + marathon phone conversations with farmers, vendors, permit offices + logistical issues resolved…the unknown demystified + survey distribution + your interest for the market bubbles~splatters~steams and becomes part of our marrow + we meet with farmers' market elders for guidance (hoping that they might almost dissuade us) but it is too late, the seed we planted is germinating!
This year brings a few changes to the vendor line-up, click here to see a list of our vendors... there are a few more additions coming so stay tuned!
We're looking for homes on streets with good visibility. All you need to do is stick the sign on your front lawn on market day. Do-it-yourself makeovers of the signs are welcome! We can even spot you some chalk!
To reserve a sign email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what street you are on. We will deliver the sign to you, or you can pick up on your next visit.
