Farmers market season nears to a close

Adams County Farmers Market Association (ACFMA) prepares for its final market of the season this Saturday.

From May through October, North Stratton Street becomes a hub of agricultural and local vendor activities, and the market looks forward to one more happening.

Facing the pandemic with resiliency, ACFMA is led by a dedicated board that sought to keep the market happening despite the unknown, through social distancing and online ordering.

Compiling multiple vendors for countless goods to a grateful community, ACFMA offers fresh local produce, handmade jewelry, top grade quality meats, and a one-of-a-kind community atmosphere that could not be accomplished without community support.

Although not all vendors take credit and debit cards, everyone will take designated market tokens, good as cash that can be purchased at the yellow tented market manager’s stall.

Dedicated to ensuring fresh fruits and vegetables for the entire community, EBT cards are also doubled up to $25, encouraging the healthy options.

The wooden tokens never expire and can be used next season, but since they are as good as cash at the ACFM, market patrons are encouraged to scrounge them up and put them to use Saturday.

Keeping with the spirit of the Autumn season, kids dressed in Halloween costumes will receive three dollars in market tokens.

ACFMA is still researching locations for next season’s market and continues to seek community engagement as it moves forward.
