Learn More About Our Vendors
Nutrition For A Lifetime is one of the market's Advertising Partners. That means they support our market and help make some of our advertising possible. Owner Cathy Bowers also contributes a monthly column with healthy eating tips to our market newsletter. Cathy is a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist who provides nutrition education, wellness coaching, and personalized menu planning. She specializes in "Whole-Foods, Plant-based Diets" but desires to work with anyone who wants to develop a long-term healthy lifestyle. She will have a table set up at this week's market so you can speak with her about all the services available. Insurance accepted.
Klassic Doughnuts has retired their Strawberry Glazed Doughnut for the season. So what will the new seasonal flavor be??? You'll have to come on Wednesday to find out! But we can tell you they are always made on-site, hand shaped, fried to perfection and delicious! 

Summer squash is certainly abundant at the market right now! And beautiful! Here's a family-pleasing classic side dish that makes it extra delicious. It's creamy and cheesy with a crisp, buttery topping. Want to mix things up? Try topping it with crispy fried onions--yes, the kind you top the green bean casserole with! They are great for this, too. Get the recipe for Yellow Squash Casserole.
For those of you unable to make it to our Wednesday market, have you heard that we are starting a second market in Norfolk? Harvest Market at O'Connor Brewing Co. will be held every 1st & 3rd Sunday, June 16 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 will be the same, but there will be some new ones, too! We would like to thank O'Connor Brewing Co. for approaching us to organize this second market, which will give even more people in our community access to locally farmed and locally made food. 
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. If we are forced to close either temporarily or for the day, we will post a notice on the home page of our website.
