Know Your Grower

We would like to invite you and your family to experience the sights, sounds, and tastes that abound on the small farms that surround the Edwardsville area and supply you with fresh market produce through the summer. During this one-day event, the market’s customers have the opportunity to tour several of the farms where their produce is grown and meet the farmers who grow it. Although you may have come to know your local farmer on market Saturdays, during the rest of the week, they are hard at work. At participating farms, you will learn more about the latest sustainable farming practices, the personal challenges of being a family farmer, and the ecological diversity of our region. Children will love visiting with the farm animals at each location. Stay tuned for more information as next year’s date approaches.
