Come to the market ready for surprises! One of the marvelous aspects of shopping at any farmer’s market is the variety not only of produce but vendors. The following are regular vendors at the market but they are by no means inclusive of everyone you will find at the market

* NEW Vendor! * Sugar Baby WATERMELON, large watermelon, lemon cucumbers. Grizzly Mountain Ranch, Glen Keller and Rebecca Harris of Rockbridge Baths!

EGGS! Dick’s Chicks. Pasture fed free-range laying hens by day that produce brown eggs nutritionally rivaling those found in supermarkets. Are you interested in local fresh chicken or beef?
