Market Watch: A Special Pre-Holiday Farmers Market

Gifts & goodies from the Farmers Market

Whether you’re planning festive time with friends or family next week, or just hunkering down for a quiet weekend -- I’m guessing you might also be dreaming of a well-stocked fridge. On Thursday, December 23rd, we’re putting together an extra special pre-holiday market for just this purpose.

In addition to the usual Thursday line up, we’ll be hosting 14 farms and vendors from our Saturday market with a variety of seasonal meats, fruits, and veggies, as well as holiday wreaths and edible gifts. Because shopping is next to impossible on an empty stomach, you might just have to refuel afterward with a steaming bowl of ramen, wood fired pizza, a Zilla dog, or any of the other delicious offerings from the eight restaurant vendors who will be on site that day.

On your way home you can also fill in any last minute gaps in your holiday shopping list with a box of 25 wooden $1 coins that can be used at any of our three weekly markets.
