The Farmers Market Annex will be open April 27 to October 27, 2024

Why Join the Farmers Market Annex?

The focus of the Farmers Market Annex has always been on the small business. Being a small, family owned business ourselves, we know the challenges to becoming successful! Our helpful staff is here to help you through the forms and places you need to contact to get your business off the ground, find a new home, or to take it to next level. We make the process to join easy and provide a safe, welcoming environment. Visit us some weekend and let our community of vendors speak for itself!

We know many of you are looking for a new home or temporary home in light of all the disruptions this past year. Know you are welcome here at the Farmers Market Annex! Regardless if you want to join us for the while season, fill in those gaps left open from Fairs and trade shows that were canceled, or just give us a try tor a week or two, you are welcome here!

We are part of the largest open air farmers market in the state. We host over 150 vendors over the course of the farmers market season. We typically welcome more than 375,000 visitors every May through October. Even last season we had strong attendance as a COIVD safe, outdoor event. Our European Bazaar-like atmosphere, is a great fit for business owners selling a myriad of products. Vendors range from those who want to make this market their main storefront to those who are using our market as a springboard into bigger things. We take pride in making the market safe, accessible, welcoming, and family friendly, with live music, kids activities, permanent facilities, and so much more.
