Farmers Market Information
The new farmers market facility is more than a open venue for local vendors. With recent renovations, the State Farmers Market has added a climate-controlled retail building, “The Corbett Building,” which houses a exhibition kitchen, bakery, restaurant, and general store. In addition, they are building another set of retail areas and a specialty food shop. Each area of the market is sectioned off, making it easy to navigate and providing farmers rental space for displaying their local products.
