Five years ago, the Antietam Valley Farmers and Artists Market (AVFAM) was created to bring quality artisan and farm products to the Antietam Valley. In addition, we set out to create a market which fosters a true sense of community. The Antietam Valley and surrounding areas have really embraced the market. We have seen the neighborhood support the market both as a place to gather and chat with friends and to purchase quality artisan products. It has been a truly wonderful journey filled with new friendships and knowledge about the benefits of buying and supporting our regional farmers and artists.

With the support of the Antietam Valley Community Partnership (AVCP) and permission from the Antietam Valley Recreation & Community Center (AVRCC) and Mount Penn Borough Municipal Authority, this market – located on the former site of the 27-acre historic Carsonia Park – has been a strong contributor to the social and economic vitality of our area and surrounding agricultural communities.

The 2019 Summer Market season will be held on Mondays:
October 21, November 18, and December 16 from 5-8pm.

We sincerely hope you will join us. We look forward to you being a partner in our market!
