Union Farmer’s Market is dedicated to providing a place where local farmers, producers, artisans and crafters can sell their products, while customers are buying fresh and eating locally produced food.

“We’ve been living in Union for about a year and we used to go to some great farmer’s markets down south,” said Union resident Kara West.  ”I’m really happy to see Union starting something like this.  We love living in Union, and we like to have some of the things we miss from home.”
