We are asking our farmers to be set up by 8 AM
to establish the selling rows and to be ready for your buyers when they arrive.
There will no longer be rummage/clothes/household for sale at the farm swap
as we stay with our core mission to be a premier farmers market/swap.
There will no longer be snacks/ drinks sellers as we try very hard to keep our food vendor coming to the farm swap especially our early morning food vendor.
Call 386-469-9409 if you have a question if it will be allowed to be sold.
Service Dogs only at the swap please - you will be asked to leave
if you bring a dog this covers both vendors and public.
