Every Saturday in May rain or shine! We are in JC Downtown (9:00 am to noon)

This Saturday, May 9th, we are located at Madison St. between High St. and Capitol Ave.

The LU Farmers’ Market is a great place for local food, fun, and community.  It offers a diverse selection; shoppers continually rave about how much they can shop from their local farm neighbors at the market. 

The market brings together families, neighbors, visitors, local food producers, and artisans. It provides locally produced food, encourages social gathering, and enhances the quality of life; it also educates students and strengthens the local economy.

Visit our educational/crafts booth with your child for a Mother’s Day crafting activity.
