Greenfield Farmers’ Market Opening Day
About This Event
Established in 1975, the Greenfield Farmers’ Market provides a direct, profitable retail sales outlet for area Farmers/Growers, and promotes the production of high quality locally grown produce and other farm or agricultural products. Additionally, to enhance both the Market and the community, we include baked goods and value added food products, crafts and other locally prepared merchandise on a space-available basis, to educate the consumer in the value of local production.
The Greenfield Farmers’ Market usually has 30 participating vendors that sell a wide variety of organic and conventional produce ranging from heirloom tomatoes, yellow & green squash, potatoes, corn, multiple varieties of lettuce, onions, scallions, culinary herbs, swiss chard, kale, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet & hot peppers, strawberries, red & black raspberries, blueberries, apples, peaches, pears, plums, apple cider, watermelon, leeks, perennial plant – cone flower, bee balm, hosta, pansies and many more varieties of plants, locally raised grass-fed beef, pork and lamb, fresh eggs, cheese and so much more!
The goal of the market is to provide Franklin County community members the opportunity to purchase fresh, local food that is affordable and delicious. It is also our goal to give customers the opportunity to build relationships with farmers from the market so you can feel comfortable about where your food is coming from and also so you can ask questions about how to prepare the items, get planting advice or just chat with an old friend.
In the past few years, we have expanded the vendor base to include craft and food vendors. These additional participants of the market provide guests the chance to purchase gifts like eco-friendly apparel, herbal elixirs, bitters, tinctures, salves, teas, wooden kitchen utensils, aprons, jewelry, hand-forged plant stands, etc. for others or themselves.
The market season typically runs from the last Saturday in April to the last Saturday in October.
