As we continue our mission to help our community eat wisely and well, we have adopted a focused market model that includes a weekly Summer Green Market and occasional special Holiday Green Markets during the Winter season. As always, our aim is to support small sustainable producers and our local food community as fruitfully as possible. Vendors at our Green Market are dedicated to educating the public about how their practices and goods affect the health of their customers and the earth. They are always happy for a conversation with market visitors!

Summer Green Market
Friday nights, June – Labor Day
We host The Green Market every Friday night during the summer, in conjunction with our fun outdoor Dinners on the Deck. Beginning in June, we will gather the best in-season produce and artisan goods from local producers and bring them to our farm just for you. Just imagine the crunch of spring pea pods or the burst of a fresh-picked strawberry in June and you will know why our Green Market is the place to be this summer! After you have filled your market basket, stay for dinner, hot off the grill, and round out the evening with live music, wine, and beer.
Look for the vendors inside the Red Barn and dinner in the Loft in case of inclement weather.
Throughout the Winter season, we will be hosting special markets from time to time, especially around the holidays.
Our Farm Store is also stocked with local, sustainable, and artisan goods. Stop by from 9am-6pm every day! You’ll find organic, grass-fed beef, pork, poultry, lamb and eggs as well as other specialty items like local raw honey, jam, condiments, olive oil, pasta sauces and pasta, crackers, krauts, maple syrup, granola, coffee, teas, and more! And of course, our nutritious, delicious Traders Point Creamery dairy products.
Watch our website and Green Market Facebook page for announcements about specialty markets before the Summer season begins!
