Music at the Market!IMG_0327

The Morris Area Farmers Markets Music at the Market exemplifies the mission of the market through building a community by bringing people together to create a space centered around one common goal of getting good food to great people in the Morris area. Musicians are able to provide a relaxing backdrop to the regular bustle of our vibrant market. This contribution creates an even more inviting space for community members to participate in, and support their local food system.

Next week Aryln Swenson will be performing at the market!

The Morris Area Farmers Market is a place where farmers, growers, producers and artisans sell their products directly to the public, and customers have a direct relationship with the producer of the items they purchase. This market emphasizes product quality, freshness and originality, with items produced and sold locally.
