About our farm market

 

Agriculture is an important part of our local heritage,and we believe it is important to support our local growers and to introduce both local residents and visitors alike to fresh produce, meats, cheese, flowers, herbs, plants, etc., grown and produced locally. This provides an important revenue stream for local growers.

 

South Haven Farm Market is committed to creating a diverse marketplace with the highest quality and locally produced products available. Although South Haven Farm Market will not be bound to apply a particular set of selection criteria in every instance and must reserve unconditional discretion to accept or refuse anyone as a South Haven Farm Market vendor, the market considers many factors when evaluating vendor applications.
