Producers-Only Philosophy

One of the keys to the Takoma Park Farmers Market’s success is the producer-only rule. This means that our vendors produce everything that they bring to market. It is a concept that benefits both the buyer and the seller.

Customers are free to ask when and how the food was produced. They can have confidence that it meets their standards of quality and safety. Farmers can be assured of a level playing field. They know their competitors faced all the same costs and risks in bringing products to market.
