market_sideThe Antietam Valley Farmers and Artists Market (AVFAM) is a market that was created and organized to operate a local farmers market which will offer 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 serve as a destination market for walkers and drivers alike. This market is designed to create a strong sense of community, and will help to sustain our local farming families and artists by providing a strong and direct market sales site.

The market is entering its seventh year with an exciting new market season. The goal of our market is to continue to bring a variety of producer-made products to our residents, and those from neighboring areas, while promoting a true sense of community.

We are located in a lovely park setting on the former site of the historic 27-acre Carsonia Park. 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 has been a strong contributor to the social and economic vitality of our area and surrounding agricultural communities.

MARKET MANAGER
CORINNE HAUK

I have lived in the Antietam Valley area since the year 2000. I attended Antietam Middle/Senior High School and the Berks Career and Technology Center, and graduated in 2004. I married my high school sweetheart in 2008, and in 2012 and 2015 we welcomed our two children into the family.

I have worked in hair salons, helped run a kids’ consignment store, written for an online parenting magazine, and am currently home-educating my kids. We love spending time together at home, going for nature walks, being with friends, volunteering, and attending the many events held in the area.

My family loves the Antietam Valley Farmers’ and Artists’ Market and I can’t wait to be part of the market family!
