2016 LA PORTE FARMER’S MARKET

SPONSORED BY THE LA PORTE URBAN ENTERPRISE ASSOCIATION

Welcome to the City of La Porte Farmer’s Market!

The City of La Porte Farmer’s Market strives to build and strengthen the local-food movement in La Porte by using our Farmer’s Market to create a vibrant community gathering place showcasing our region’s bounty, creating economic opportunities, and bringing healthy options to our citizens.

At the market you will find growers selling fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs, cheese, honey, and often home baked goods. Our market items are coming directly from the producer allowing you the opportunity to get to know where your food is coming from. You will find your choice of products that have been grown, raised, made conventionally or organically without additive antibiotics, hormones, pesticides and /or insecticides.  Nearly 95% of products available at the market will be sold directly by the producer.

Get there early enough and the first cup of coffee is on me, Merrill D. Marxman, the new market manager. I am retired from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and I have spent the last 15 years managing farmer’s markets.

Look for me wearing the red and white manager’s cap!
