A year has come and gone since we started this adventure! Now it's time to plan for the next season... Mother Nature is unpredictable and gave us plenty of challenges in season one but we learned a lot and look forward to an awesome second season!
First Maryville Farmer's Market will be Thursday, May 23rd from 4:00 to 6:30pm... we can't wait!
The regular Market season hasn't started yet but we will be doing some pop-up deliveries between now and May!
As a Non-Profit Organization, it is our goal to provide the local community with access to healthy food sources and additionally, partner with the local food pantry to connect people with fresh food. In our first season we were able to donate several thousand dollars to the Maryville Outreach Center, Maryville Elementary School and Maryville Fire Department through our markets.
Visit the Market Manager booth for great market merchandise to support our food pantry and education programs.
Here is our official mission statement:
· To provide the Village of Maryville residents the opportunity to purchase locally farmed, produced or manufactured goods in their home town, and support those local business owners, while fostering a stronger sense of community and connection with our food sources.
· Secondarily, to educate and empower local residents with knowledge of nutrition, healthy eating and local farming practices.
