The Jefferson Farmers Market has been in existence for ten years.  The first two years we co-hosted with the city of Commerce. One week in Jefferson, one week in Commerce.  By mid-season of the second year it became clear that the vendors wanted to be in one place, the same place, every week.  The local customers also wanted to know that they could come to Downtown Jefferson every Saturday to get their produce from their favorite grower.  Since then, we have hosted our Farmers Market in Downtown Jefferson every Saturday during the market season.

In spring 2015 we saw that the USDA was presenting workshops on how to get grant money for your local farmers market.  After attending the workshop, a grant application was submitted and thankfully, we were awarded one of the two-year grants.  The funds from that grant directly support the promotion, expansion and running of the market.  In 2016 we introduced several new things. Including new promotional items (t-shirts, hats, shopping bags, and bumper stickers), an increased social media presence, special events and promotions, a re-structured organizational committee, and so much moreto still come! 

As we prepared for the 2019 season, we re-evaluated the feasability of this program with the needs of our community. The foundation of a successful market is (1) vendors, and (2) patrons. However, we understand that both have many other options and opportunities within our region.  Therefore, we have decided to change our market days to the third and fourth (and fifth, if applicable) Saturday of the month, June through September. Additional Saturday dates may be added, should the need arise. Thank you to all of our vendors and patrons for continuing to support this endeavor.
