How We Got Started
In 2013, back when Second Stage Amherst was not much more than a vision in a few people’s minds, the idea of hosting a community farm market was brought to the table as a way for us to be of service to our community.
Now beginning our 7th season, we’re continuing to make innovative changes to better serve our vendors and customers.
New this year, Come to the Table – a community-centric table where growers, producers, and artisans who are unable to be at the market can offer their goods for a small commission fee. This is also ideal for the small producer – someone with a bumper crop from their backyard garden, but not enough to set up a booth at the market.
For more information, please call Market Manager Crystal Ungar at (330) 814-1476 or email email@example.com.
Our mission is the same as that of Second Stage Amherst: To provide a place where the cultural, civic, and economic vitality of Amherst County is encouraged. This is what drives us to produce a market that is woven into the fabric of our community.
We think local is important – that’s why you’ll never have to wonder about where your purchases actually came from. We don’t allow resellers, folks who buy produce from a wholesaler and then sell them to you. When you buy fresh produce, meats, baked goods, or other items from our market, you can rest assured that what you’re taking home to your family was grown or created locally.
Come to the Table
If you’re a grower, producer, or just a family gardener with too much of anything from asparagus to zinnias, our Community Table is just for you! For a small commission, your harvest can be featured on our Community Table with that of other local folks who are unable to attend the market or don’t have enough for their own booth.
