gps farmers market

Open for the 2017 season from June 1st to September 21st.

The mission of the GPS Farmers Market is to provide a family friendly gathering place in the Parks community where people can purchase fresh, local, in season produce, treats, crafts and more. We are dedicated to supporting local farms and producers. Falling under the umbrella of our Hope for the Hungry program, the market is committed to bring healthy and fresh to those who can least afford it by accepting SNAP/Link benefits. The market partners with the GPS Community Gardens,  another program of Hope for the Hungry, to sell fresh-picked produce at the market. Excess Community Gardens produce is donated to the community.
