Westport Farmers' Market

Westport Farmers' Market
7 Sylvan Lane
307-690-1759

History:

In June of 2006, Paul Newman and Michel Nischan planted a seed and we opened our doors in the parking lot of the Westport Country Playhouse. We were so proud of our 14 vendors, and so grateful for the 500 shoppers who showed up to support us.

In 2009, we moved to our current home at 50 Imperial Avenue, a stone's throw from the Saugatuck River. With a little more space and a little more air, we began to put down roots. We started expanding our programming, and our role within the community.

By 2010, we welcomed winter by expanding our market to cover the colder months, too. Gilbertie's Herb Garden embraced us with open arms, and before we knew it, the vendors and shoppers had doubled.

Today, boasting the accolade of the strictest guidelines in the state, the market is blooming with 45 vendors! Food trucks, GMO free vendors, organic farmers, pizza, yoga, chef demos, tamales, and an eager, hungry lunch crowd. We now welcome thousands of eager shoppers every week.

From the first seeds that were planted in 2006, we have grown, and blossomed. We remain committed to our initial goals -- to provide fresh, local, healthy and seasonal food to our community. And we continue to aspire to create a fun, safe and healthy community environment that promotes education about local food, local farms, and sustainable, healthy growing practices.
