Upcoming Events

Plan to join us Saturday February 17, 9 am to noon for a hands on planning workshop to maximize your vegetable production for all skill levels at the Grayson LandCare/IFM office at 108 Courthouse Street. We’ll talk about planting dates, spacing, interplanting and succession plantings as well as organic pest and disease control. Using information from the best national and local gardeners you’ll learn to apply these techniques to a single raised bed or a full sized market garden. Hope to see you then! The cost is $10 and includes light snacks and the class is limited to 30 people. Please email Michelle Pridgen at independencefarmersmarket@gmail.com to register.

Have you thought about becoming a vendor at the Farmers Market? Here’s your chance to join returning vendors and find out about the coming season and enjoy a potluck lunch on Friday, April 6th from 10am-2pm at the Grayson Landcare office. Check out our Facebook event page for more information.

Thank you for supporting the Independence Farmers Market!

ALFN Local Food Club:  Celebrate with us at Lost 40!


Happy Thursday everyone!

Just a few months ago we set a goal to raise $5,000 for the startup costs of transitioning our online market to a new software platform. Thanks to the great generosity of our members and a private matching donation, we are so excited to announce that we have officially met our goal!

We hope that you can join us tonight at Lost 40 to celebrate this success and enjoy time with the great community of local food supporters who make our mission possible. Please note that the start time of the event has changed to 5:30-7:00pm. This is a casual event with food and a cash bar to get great local beer!

We will continue to have opportunities for you to give to the ongoing success of our organization as we venture into this new project. If you missed the window to donate to the GoFundMe campaign there will be ways for you to donate at tonight’s event in support of our organization as we shift gears and grow into this new opportunity. No donation is required to attend and have fun.

Thank you all so much! Hope to see you tonight.
