Every Thursday from 4pm-7pm, visit City Roots for our on-site Farmers Market!
The market features a selection of local products week-to-week: fresh, organic produce grown at City Roots’ farm, pasture-raised beef, pork, lamb and poultry, free range eggs, artisan breads and baked goods, organic maize products, fresh milk and butter, cheese, honey and a selection of craft beer and wine. Different local food vendors will have food available for purchase, and farm vendors will have tastings and specials, all accompanied with live, acoustic music.
We've partnered with other local, sustainable farmers to offer a fun, alternative shopping experience, as well as the chance to get to know the farmers and producers responsible for your food. The market is designed to be a one-stop shop for locally-sourced, CSA-driven meals, in a relaxed farm environment. We hope to see you there!
