Market goers can enjoy dinner from the popular Winter Market Cafe, music by Jerry Carrier and enter this month’s raffle for a chance to win a basket of market goodies.

The market has become the community’s connection to area farmers, producers and artisans with more than 20 vendors offering in-season fruits and vegetables, pastured meats, milk and dairy products, artisan cheeses and breads, baked goods, seafood, prepared meals, sweets, cut flowers, maple products, fiber arts, hand crafted soaps, herbs and herbal products, pottery, art and more.
