Yesterday was National Farmers Day, and we want to share our appreciation for all of the amazing farmers in our area. We are so fortunate to live in such an agriculturally rich region of the country, where you can source so much food locally and through all seasons.

We are especially grateful for the toil, time, and great care our KSQ farmers invest in getting their fresh goods to our market each week. Join us in thanking them for their hard work and commitment this Friday!

A few notes for 10/16:

See you Friday! 3–3:30pm for Seniors + others at-risk / 3:30–6pm for all

We greatly appreciate our market community's continued cooperation with distancing as much as possible while shopping and wearing a mask. Our producers also appreciate your respect in this way as you interact with them! Let's continue to work together to keep each other healthy through the cooler seasons. Thank you!

Please Note: Preorders are still welcomed, appreciated & recommended by vendors who have the option, so find this week's lineup below, and place orders by the deadlines noted.
