Wednesday Markets are open !


Our Wednesday Markets are open 3 pm to 6 pm. We always have a lot of produce.

Do come in, get out of the car, and check out our vendors.

They work hard each week growing the food they bring to the market. It take’s a lot of work to grow, gather,load, drive to the market, unload and then reload and drive home each week.

Some of our vendors come to both the wednesday and saturday markets.

They all deserve our admiration and respect.
