The Board of the Stoughton Community Farmers' Market, INC. has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 outdoor market season. As many things remain unknown about Covid-19, we feel that we are unable to effectively meet the needed guidelines that best protect the most vulnerable. Stopping the spread is everyone's responsibility.
We recognize the importance of the market as it provides the community an avenue for healthy and locally sourced foods. Our vendors will be offering a preorder/prepaid option. Pick up will be Saturday mornings, 9-11am at 111 W. Jefferson St. (formerly St. Vinny's), next to Nauti Norske. We ask that you place orders directly with vendors.
The Stoughton Community Farmers Market was founded in 2015. We are a producer only market taking place rain or shine in the heart of downtown. Find us Saturdays, 8:30-12:00 on Forrest St.
You can expect to find at the farmers market ; quality produce, raw honey, farm raised fish, soaps, salves, sheep pelts, grass fed beef, eggs, local artists, non-profit and community groups, and more!
The Stoughton Community Farmers Market is run by a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors and two volunteer interim market managers. We are actively recruiting volunteers to assist with grant writing, fundraising, market operations, and more. Inquire below!
Making a positive impact in your community and on your own well being can be as simple (and enjoyable!) as shopping at your local farmer’s market.
In the United States, it is estimated that food travels about 1,500 miles from farm to table. This has an enormous impact on the environment when considering the amount of resources required to travel such a distance. On top of the environmental impact, in order to travel such distances, food is often picked before it is ripe and consequently, often requires treatment with preservatives in order for food to stay "fresh" before it reaches your plate.
When you buy food from your local market, you can put food in your body knowing that it’s fresh and traveled from just a couple miles down the road. This means better flavor and higher nutritional content of the food you consume in addition to being kinder to the environment. Don’t forget, shopping at your local market also means supporting your community. Buying local means your dollars stay local. Not only that, but making a point to spend some time at your local market and meet your local farmers means building a greater sense of community. Positive changes to the community you live in and your well being can start with The Stoughton Community Farmers’ Market!
