Welcome to the fifth annual Linton Farmers’ Market!
The Linton Farmers’ Market is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to connecting consumers with local produce and other homemade, value-added products. Everything sold at the Market is produced by the vendor.
Market Dates, Time, and Location
The Market is located in the southeast corner of Humphreys City Park. It will operate Saturdays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, from May 20th through September 30th.
The mission of the Linton Farmers’ Market is:
• To offer residents of the Linton area a variety of fresh, healthy, local foods and homestead products,
• To promote small, local farmers and producers by providing a friendly community gathering place to sell their goods directly to the consumer, and
• To promote a sense of community and support the local economy.
The Linton Farmers’ Market endeavors to inspire, educate and encourage all Linton residents to choose healthy, locally-produced foods, to participate in the community building aspects of the market, and to help support a local, sustainable food system.
The Linton Farmers’ Market is looking for musicians and performers of all kinds to donate their time and talent to our market. Performers will be provided with a stage that includes amplification and power and are welcome to use a tip jar and/or sell their own recordings or merchandise. Performers will be promoted in our weekly newsletter and on our Facebook page. If you are interested in participating, please contact our Entertainment Coordinator Virgil Franklin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our vendors offer a wide variety of local fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy, and other farm related products. Vendor space at this year’s Market is very limited and previous Vendors will be given preference. A Vendor waiting list will be maintained for those Vendors not qualifying for this year’s Market. If you are interested in participating in our Market as a vendor, please check our Vendor Page for more information.
