The market now includes three additional weeks in December, and will also include the popular Sunday Funday events this year on May 19th, July 21st and October 27th.

“Building on the incredible success of 2023, with over 4,000 visitors joining us each week, we’re excited to unveil the 31st season of the Summit Farmers Market!” said Market Administrator, Marin Mixon. “Our commitment to supporting local farmers and small businesses remains stronger than ever. We can’t wait to welcome back familiar faces and introduce new vendors to our vibrant community.

The G.I.F.T. (Give It Fresh Today) program will be at the market and continue to collect fresh food each week. The program celebrates its 14th year this season. With over 13,000 pounds of donations collected last year, the program makes a real difference in the lives of local families. The Summit Farmers Market community plays a vital role in this success, with customers and vendors generously contributing to the cause. Through their partner G.R.A.C.E. (Giving and Receiving Assistance for our Community’s Essentials), these donations are distributed weekly to families. 

The Summit Farmers Market will be open Sundays from April 28-November 24 from 8am-1pm, then Sundays, December 8, 15 & 22 from 8am-12pm. The market is located at Park & Shop Lot #1 at the corner of DeForest Avenue and Woodland Avenue.
