Shop Local in September at Wilmington Area Farmer’s Markets

Farmer's Market

There is nothing like fresh! You can put some of the best our local vendors offer on your table when you shop at our many area Farmer’s Markets. Enjoy locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh baked goods, meats, fish, dairy, wines and more. Many of the farmer’s markets also feature local arts and crafts, plant, and garden products along with specialty merchandise. Please use the links below to get more details on what makes each market unique.

When you choose to shop at a farmer’s market you have the ability to choose fresh, not frozen, not processed and not loaded with preservatives. You will get to meet the people who actually grow, produce, bake, or create these products. This interaction may allow you to pick up tips on different and sometimes unique ways to prepare your purchase that you would otherwise not have the opportunity to learn. Many times a vendor will allow you to sample before you purchase. With very few exceptions, try that at the big chain grocery store.
