What started as three farmers with tents in April of 2013, has now grown to include fill the parking lot of Sticks and Stones with growers, makers and bakers! The market is the brainchild of Stephen Johnson, urban farmer and proprietor of Elam Gardens just a block away from the Corner. He contacted Mike Faucette, 4th generation farmer and meat guy Bobby Coltrane to round out the initial offering. Neil Reitzel, owner of Sticks and Stones, was already purchasing local produce from the trio and offered up the parking lot for a Saturday morning market. By fall, the market had expanded to a dozen or so vendors, many of whom still share the space today. As of our seventh birthday in April of 2020, our market regularly features 30-40 vendors!
