At the Growers’ Market, in season, are the ripest and freshest local fruits and vegetables within approximately 500 miles. From asparagus to zucchini, the Growers’ Market showcases a constantly changing variety of products. Over 150 members attend the Growers’ Market serving from 300 to 5,000 visitors per Saturday. Also in the Growers’ Market are various non-profit community organizations who attend as guest vendors.
