About the event

Farmers markets exist worldwide and reflect their local culture and economy. Their sizes range

from a few stalls to several city blocks. Farmers markets have many benefits to the farmers, the

communities as well as consumers.

Communities with farmers markets find that the markets help maintain important social ties,

linking rural and urban populations and even close neighbors in mutually rewarding exchange.

Markets generate traffic for nearby businesses and buying at markets encourages attention to

the surrounding area and ongoing activities by providing outlets for ‘local’ products. Farmers

markets also help create distinction and uniqueness, which can increase pride and encourage

visitors to return.

Consumers favor farmers markets for the fresher, seasonal, and healthier foods, and a better

variety of foods. They meet the farmers who grow their food and gain knowledge of how their

food is produced (e.g., organically grown foods, pasture-raised meats, free-range eggs and

poultry, handmade farmstead cheeses, heirloom produce, and heritage breeds of meat).

St Stephen Growth and Development (SSGD) and Small Town Restoration, Inc. (STRI), two

locally managed non-profit organizations, manage the St Stephen Farmers Market under the

Town of Saint Stephen sponsorship. The market originally opened in 2019 but was closed during

the 2020/21 season due to Covid restrictions. The St Stephen Farmers Market reopened stronger

in 2022 with new vendors and new events.

Along with a wide variety fresh fruits and vegetables, you can find vendors who produce desserts

like cobblers, cakes, brownies and cookies. We also have local artisans who make jewelry,

clothing, and home décor. Thirsty? We have fruit spiked teas and lemonades.

Together with homegrown and handmade products, the St Stephen Farmers Market provides a

venue for local food trucks to sell prepared hot foods.

All of our vendors take cash, and some take debit/credit cards, including senior vouchers and


Anyone can sell at the market as long as they grew it, baked it, made it, crafted it, etc. 

The fee is $5 weekly.
