ABOUT OUR MARKET

market_sideThe Antietam Valley Farmers’ and Artists’ Market (AVFAM) was created and organized to operate a local farmers market, offering consumers a wide range of locally grown produce and products made by the vendors themselves. The market will serve a long established residential community of over 9000 people, as well as become a destination market for walkers and drivers alike. Our market is designed to create an enhanced sense of community, and will help to sustain our local farming families and artists by providing a strong and direct market sales site. Both vendors and shoppers alike will enjoy the beautiful park setting of the market: an open-air market when the weather is agreeable, and a large indoor covered space for when nature does not cooperate with us.

The market is sponsored and organized by the Antietam Valley Community Partnership, with support from the Antietam Valley Recreation & Community Center and the Mt. Penn Water Authority.

Throughout the farmers’ market season, attendees will have the opportunity to buy nutritious, flavorful produce and homemade products, gather with friends and neighbors, enjoy our neighborhood park, and learn about the benefits of supporting local agriculture and the local economy.

The market will take place rain or shine throughout the season. Use 905 Byram Street, 19606 as your GPS address for the market.
