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.
Stop by the Morris Healthy Eating Booth for a chance to sample freshly prepared food! All produce is sourced from the Morris Area Farmers Market vendors that day! Share preparation tips and recipe ideas with Mary Jo!
Last week we sampled Cabbage, Corn and Tomato Salad!
If you are a farmer, a small grower, or perhaps a just a big gardener with a “green thumb”, we need you at the Morris Area Farmers Market! Here is a great opportunity to get started: the Morris Area Farmers Market is offering a one day free pass for new vendors to sell at the market. The current MAFM vendors want you to give us a try, and invite you to be a part of our growing and flourishing Morris Area Farmers 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.
MARKET DAYS AND HOURS: Thursdays, 3 pm to 6 pm
LAST DAY: Until end of season
LOCATION: Morris Public Library Square, just off 6th Street and Oregon Avenue in downtown Morris
