Our Farmers & Producers
The real MVP's of City Greens Market are the farmers and producers that dedicate their lives to growing, raising, baking, etc. all of the healthy and delicious food that we sell. We are proud to work with these wonderful folks and are grateful that the market has given us an opportunity to get to know them personally. We are very picky about who we buy food from; the following farms and businesses are partners of the market because they care about our community, the quality of their food, and the environment.
