The Land of Goshen Community Market
The Land of Goshen Community Market started in 1997 by area farmers and makers, is one of the biggest farmer’s markets in the region and one of the best! Dozens of vendors sell locally-grown fruits and vegetables, microgreens, hydroponic produce, potted plants, pumpkins and gourds, berries, herbs, fresh-cut flowers, seeds, and more! Find meat vendors selling local and farm-raised beef, longhorn beef, pork, lamb, and goat meats, cheese, chicken, eggs, and honey. The market also offers baked goods, coffee, gourmet chocolates, cooking dips, mixes, and spices, kettle corn, small-batch jams, jellies, and pickles, as well as non-food items like art from regional artists, leather goods, hand-made baskets, skin-care and hair-care products, soaps, dishware, children’s items, wood furniture, hand-woven rugs and wool, jewelry, and more!
Besides vendors, expect live music daily at the market, live demonstrations of different arts and crafts, gardening tips, and more- the market runs rain or shine and only cancels in extremely inclement weather. Come early for the best selection- the market opens on the bell at 8 AM and vendors cannot sell before the bell! The market grows richer as the seasons change and vendor items change based on growing seasons. There is always something new to find at the Goshen Market and you can feel good about your purchases supporting local families, farms, and businesses.
