Our growers and producers don’t stop growing or producing, so we won’t stop being open for you and them.

We love baked goods, and are willing to work with Cottage Food Producers that do not have have pets in their home with the exception of service animals. All other will need to work out of a certified kitchen.
Nope! Not! NEVER! We are a direct producers market that only works with producers directly growing and making their products. Failure to abide by this policy will result in termination of participation.
The markets main focus is to address food insecurity in the food desert while supporting local agriculture, many are not certified organic because they are hobbyist gardeners and/or small farms without the resources to get officially certified.
Each gardener/farm producer will have a “growing practices” sheet clipped to their booth that defines how they are categorized. Our goal is to have a mix of conventional, sustainable, certified naturally grown and certified organic producers.
We believe locally grown food should be available to all people. We will file the necessary paper work to ensure that these payment forms are accepted at our market.
Please send all inquiries about sponsoring the market to Caressa Brown at email@example.com or 937-416-1388.
