Marché de la vieille gare -

Marché de la vieille gare - Sherbrooke, Québec

I love this market which has been built in a disaffected train station. Indoors you can find a range of fine foods from a cheese shop and butcher to ready to eat organic vegetarian meals. Outside are stalls where local farmers sell their produce and home made goods - Jams, Jellies, Pesto, Cider.

Here is a link so that you may have a virtual visit: http://www.marchedelagare.com/plansite.html (French only, but as the page refreshes the photos change.) Enjoy.

Berlin, NH Farmers

By mrsbuck

Berlin, NH Farmers Market---new this year. A little town trying to rebuild itself after the close of it's largest employer (papermill). This farmers market is the best. Not only are we offered local produce, breads, soaps, crafts, maple syrup, entertainment, music, etc, it is a great social gathering. It's easy to see how a little town comes together thanks to many good people. Feel free to visit. Thursdays 3pm to 7pm until September 16th.

Yes, for the love of Farmer's

By Susan

Yes, for the love of Farmer's Markets! I live in Garner, NC (southeastern Wake County), so I have two to choose from. The first is the State Farmers Market in Raleigh and the second is the Johnston County Produce Market in Smithfield. A trip to either one with my mother makes for a fine afternoon! Oh, and the fresh fruits and veggies, too. Often time we see some crafters and have a great day, usually once a month...I could go on and on! :)

By Susan Hendry

I love the Ashville N.C. Farmer's market. It has all sorts of surprises in fresh produce and meats, jars of everything from honey to pickles and all very reasonably priced. We hit it going to and coming from Virginia for our family reunion and bring lots of delicious fresh treats back to Florida.

Thanks for the contest and a chance to add three new listings for farmers markets in Indiana, two in Evansville Indiana and one in Newburgh Indiana. With such a great variety in my area I am lucky I don't have to choose a favorite. They are all great!

We have three Farmers Markets

By Kat Lanctot

We have three Farmers Markets that we love. Two of them are not listed in your directory. One is our Scotts Valley Farmers Market open every Saturday 9am to 1pm (all year, all weather). The other not listed is in Felton, it's open on Tuesdays, May thru November. We also frequent the Santa Cruz Farmers Market on Wednesdays. All three are in Santa Cruz County, California. All three have wonderful selections of local produce. They also have fresh baked goods and locally roasted coffees. When in season, they have fresh fish. We go mostly for the wonderful local produce, great choices and reasonable prices. We feel it keeps our local economy and our bodies healthy!

By gardengurl

N. Tonawanda City Market is AAA. Great prices on produce, plants and so much more just about 12 miles from Niagara Falls. Open Tues., Thurs. and Saturday until 1 p.m. year round. I think it is the best market in the Buffalo/Niagara Region.

My favorite is The Georgia

By Vicki Christie

My favorite is The Georgia State Farmers Market in Forest Park, Georgia. I have been going there since I was about 5 years old. I am now 56. We would go real early in the morning then go back to my Grandmothers. She lived in Techwood Homes public housing. It was nothing like the public housing of today! We would go back there and shuck white corn, string beans and get the butter beans ready. Next we would walk up an down the sidewalks with our peck baskets selling vegetables to those who had no way to get their fresh vegetables. It was such a more simple time and so much fun.
