  • Do you can jellies, jams, preserves, pickles, and salsas?
  • Do you make candles, soaps, and lotions?

You don’t have to own a business to sell at the market.  You just have to be ready to make money selling the fruits of your hobbies and hard work.

If you own your own business, the Main Street Farmers’ Market is a fun, relaxed environment to get to know your next clients.  Promote your services to an audience focused on supporting local businesses.
