Please note: We will hold a special 90-minute farmers market on Saturday, Aug. 30 from 7:30 to 9am because of the street closures for the Matthews Alive Festival parade. Plan to come early that day and get fresh locally raised ingredients for your Labor Day Weekend meals! Our back parking lot will only be open to market customers before 9:15am.
Pictured above (l-r): Daniel Carpenter, Thom Duncan, Peter Reinhart and Jonathan Carpenter at our pepper roasting station. Thom recently donated a beautiful new stainless steel pepper roaster to the farmers' market. It replaces a pepper roaster that was on extended loan from Chef Reinhart. Many thanks to them both for their generosity. You can find Daniel and/or Jonathan manning our pepper roaster for the next couple of months at the front of the market. Roasting is a free service for market customers.
