The Mission and Goals of the Market
The Mission of this market is to serve all Garrett County residents and visitors alike, and specifically the Deep Creek Lake/Northern Garrett County region. Our vision is to grow, nourish, and inspire community. There are inherent benefits for the consumer, producer, and community where food is grown, purchased, and consumed locally. We strive to improve the variety, taste, and freshness of products available to consumers in our area.
The Deep Creek Farmers Market is a community event that promotes a wholesome, social gathering place in our area showcasing our rich agricultural heritage, local craftspersons, and unique small businesses. We create a space for interaction between the consumer and the producer providing opportunities to educate consumers about local agriculture. We promote strong, trusting relationships between consumers and vendors by insisting on honesty and transparency in all aspects of the creation of products.
