Our Vendors

As an organization, we realized we can do so much more for the community and small business. Last season’s vendors were proof of that.

Brand new businesses sold out their products. Existing businesses networked, grew their business and sold out their products too.

By providing this service we are promoting economic opportunities among small family farms as well as small businesses while improving health through increased consumption of locally grown products! Farmers and consumers alike benefit from improved access to fresh, healthy, local food and products. This type of consumer connection creates economic opportunities for small and mid-sized family farms and local businesses and increases consumer choice and access to fresh and healthy food for families in densely populated urban area.
