Kids Day at the market

September 14th is kids day at the market. If you are 14 years old or younger and would like to be a vendor, this is the day to try it out. If you make it, bake it and create it, you can be a vendor. There is a $5 registration fee. Come to the market managers tent and register before Sept 14th. The market runs every Saturday 10-1

Opening day at the park

We move outdoors May 4th!  The market will run every Saturday May through October, 10-1. We are located at the park on the corner of Depot and River St.  with the Walloomsac River in the background. Always live music from local musicians.

August at the market

While we can’t change the humidity in the air, we can offer fresh produce that nourishes and hydrates your body. Support the folks who work year-round to bring you coffee, free range and organic meat and poultry, lots of fresh vegetables, maple syrup, handmade soaps and lotions, eggs, lovely preserves and mustards as well as tasty baked goods!

Please don’t forget we moved back outdoors in May, which means we are at 150 Depot Street in Downtown Bennington every Saturday from 10am to 1pm through October.
