The market officially opens the first Saturday, in May, and runs through the last Saturday, in October, 8-Noon. On Saturdays you will find the largest amount of vendors. A few vendors also set up on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8-Noon from June-October. Some of our vendors sell during the "off" season too. Find them at the pavilion 10-Noon, on Saturdays, November-April. It's best to follow those farmers on social media to be sure they will be there each Saturday.
No! We are open rain or shine. We have a beautiful pavilion to keep you dry when you shop. It also have fans and shade to help keep your experience enjoyable, in summer.
There are three parking areas. 1. Right next to the pavilion. These spaces are very limited and we encourage you to leave them for our handicap customers. 2. Across the street from the pavilion, off Carter Street, there is a parking lot. 3. In Riverwalk Park area there are several parking areas. They will require a little uphill walk to get to the market pavilion.
Each vendor decides which type of payment they will accept. Several of them take credit cards and digital payments as well as cash.

Masks are not required. It is up to each individual to assess the risk and take appropriate precautions. Some vendors wear them, some do not. Most vendors should have hand sanitizer available for your use. The market is open air. Maintain social distance when shopping and in line. Several vendors take preorders online for fast pick up. As always, please don't handle the produce if you don't plan to buy it.
No. We have several vendors that only sell what they grow, while others grow most of the products and supplement with procuct sourced elsewhere. It is best to ask each farmer individually if they grow everything they sell.
You have to ask each farmer, individually, about their growing practices. Some grow organically, but are not certified, or have an alternative certification like, Certified Naturally Grown. You can talk to them about their growing practices and learn more about each farmer, by visiting our "Meet the Vendors" page and visiting their websites.
