Your Guide to Local Farmers Markets & Farm Stands

Updated for 2021

April 30, 2020

It's Farmers Market season again! Our local community markets offer everything from plant starts, eggs, cheese, artisan bread, tons of fruits, berries and veggies, crafts, meat, fish and even ice cream and other sweet treats throughout the season.  Every market offers something unique and brings out the character of a town, and most have live music and activities for the kids.  This year things are running a little different because of COVID-19.  Please make sure to check out the market's Facebook page or website before going to the market.
