YES! We are open this Wednesday! Come see us from 3:00 to 6:00 pm for all kinds of locally grown, locally harvested, locally raised, and locally handmade foods to make it a flavor-filled 4th! All your summer produce favorites are now available--sweet corn, summer squash, snap beans, eggplant, peppers, melons, peaches, berries....AND THE TOMATOES! Our market vendors have the BEST tomatoes!

Norma's Produce at Penn Farm

Full Quiver Farm has all your grilling needs--chicken, pork, beef and even lamb. And don't forget breakfast--fresh eggs, bacon, sausage and Canadian bacon will start the day off right.

VISIT OUR NEW MARKET AT O'CONNOR BREWING TWICE A MONTH ON SUNDAYS!
 
For those of you unable to make it to our Wednesday market, have you heard that we have partnered with O'Connor Brewing started a second market in Norfolk? Harvest Market at O'Connor Brewing Co. will be held every 1st & 3rd Sunday through October 6, from noon to 4 pm. You can just pop in to shop at the market, or stay for an afternoon of great beer, good times with friends and to support all things LOCAL! This new market has its own Facebook page, so "Like" it to keep up with all the news. Many of the vendors are at both markets, and there are some who are unique to just one of them. Either way, we have a great selection!

Markets are rain or shine. Brief thunderstorms early in the market day may force us to put sales on hold temporarily. In the event of widespread thunderstorms or storms in the final hour of the market, we may be forced to close for the day.
