The Market at the Horse Farm will be a recognized destination for local farmers selling their agricultural products, local artisans selling their wares, and value-added food vendors offering local specialty food and drink, thereby creating a community incubator of economic development for these small businesses. The Lafayette Market encourages a sustainable local food system as it offers: fresh healthy, local food choices to customers of all income levels, relationships with farmers and fishers, interactive cooking classes and educational opportunities for our community, especially our youth, on the social, economic and health benefits of producing, buying and consuming fresh, local food, with respect to seasonal harvests. The Lafayette Market seeks to become a central gathering place for our culturally diverse residents and visitors.
The Lafayette Farmers and Artisans Market at the Horse Farm, Inc. (LFAM) provides access to affordable food and health education by serving as a premier venue for seasonal, farm-based products and artisanal creations offered by local producers. Located in Lafayette Central Park, LFAM is a regional hub of interactive cultural and educational activity with programs ranging from cooking classes and gardening workshops to heritage events, environmental stewardship lessons, and traditional craft demonstrations. LFAM provides an arena in which farmers, gardeners, nutritionists, physicians, yoga instructors, chefs, cultural leaders, artists, consumers, and others can build collaborative relationships, thereby empowering locals to improve health outcomes and fostering a strong sense of community.
