Believe it or not, we've reached the final week of this year's Thompson’s Station Farmer’s Market season! We’ve had such a fun summer, and we couldn’t have asked for better vendors and products. So we’re celebrating the 2018 season with one last Family Night and market, this Wednesday from 4-7 p.m. at Homestead Manor.
One of the things that makes our market so unique is the venue that hosts us every week! The beautiful barn at Homestead Manor houses the Thompson’s Station Farmer’s Market every Wednesday from 4-7pm, and this week we want to highlight the Homestead Manor farm, which has its own vendor booth with fresh produce picked right on the farm on the back 40 acres of the property weekly.
Drumroll, please! We ❤️highlighting our local vendors that represent the Thompson’s Station community and show up each week with their amazing products! This week, we’re highlighting one of our meat vendors that has been with us at our market for years, Hippo Hollow Farms!
We're shining the spotlight this week on eco diva, one of our awesome, new regular vendors! You’ve probably seen their booth pop up here and there around the market in previous years, but they’re permanent vendors this year and a favorite in our community.
We absolutely love our vendors at the Thompson’s Station Farmers Market, and we love sharing their stories with you! You could say we’re their biggest fans 🤗 This week we’re shining the spotlight on one of our brand new vendors, Our Farm on Mount Olivet! You’ve probably seen Larry at their booth surrounded by stunning vegetables and greens. Here’s a little more insight about Larry and the farm!
The Thompson’s Station Farmers Market is in full swing for 2018, and we couldn’t have asked for a better start. The weather has been beautiful, we’ve had two full markets, and full crowds to boot! Our new market hours of 4-7pm seem to be well-received by the community.
We’re so excited about all the returning vendors from 2017, and we’ve also got tons of new faces that we want you to meet! We thought we’d kick off the first post on the blog for this season with a spotlight on one of our brand new vendors - &3 Foods!
The Thompson’s Station Farmers Market will kick off its 2018 season on Wednesday, May 2 at 4 p.m. in the barn at Homestead Manor. Now in its eighth year, the market will be held weekly on Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. through July 25, featuring more than 20 local vendors who have grown, made, baked, raised and crafted their products within a 50 mile radius of the historic property.
“We received an overwhelmingly positive response to the two night markets we held last year,” said Ashley Kirby, manager of the Farmers Market. “We hope that the later hours will be more convenient for both our vendors and our customers and also allow parents to bring their children and spend time enjoying the beautiful Homestead Manor property each week.”
