For nearly 8 years this Farmer’s Market brings in hyper local, not resale items from less 200 mile radius.

“In recent years people have gotten more conscience about where their food comes from,” says Ramona Ridge, who runs and operates the market. “You can talk to the person who actually grew your food and ask questions like what fertilizer they used and if it’s organic.”
