Magnolia Community Farmers’ Market

Hello Gloucester and neighboring communities! We are super excited and looking forward to our first farmers market this season, Sunday morning June 9, 9am-12pm. We are currently still taking applications, and would love to add any local purveyors selling their jams, jellies, honey, eggs, cheeses and/or dairy, baked goods, and produce. If you or someone you know would love the exposure for your business and the opportunity to further build your customer base, please contact us for a vendor application. We are looking forward to building a vibrant market and we want you to be a part of it!  See you there

The Magnolia Community Farmer’s Market will reopen in June of 2019 with a new line up of vendors, followers, entertainment and community purpose. We hope to offer favorite flavors, produce and products, created and operated by local vendors, crafters, artisans, farmers, purveyors, bakers, and chefs. Our dedicated team will strive to provide the very best in local goods while creating a new avenue to give back to our community. Funds raised by the MCFM will directly benefit the enrichment of Magnolia.
