This fun family event features local farmers and producers selling everything from vegetables to handmade lotions. It’s a great way to support local business owners and get some inspiration for your weekend meals.

History of the Market

The Producers Only Downtown Canton Farmers Market was first launched in 2018 by Canton Main Street as a true producer-only farmer’s market in the Historic Canton Downtown Square. The event has grown with each passing year and expanded to include music performers as well. This year’s season opened on April 23rd and has so far been met with much success.

Mission of the Market

The purpose of the inaugural Producers Only Downtown Canton Farmers Market was to support local farmers and producers in and around the Canton area. It was important to Canton Main Street to honor small business owners who believe in growing, producing, and cooking without harmful chemicals, antibiotics, etc.

What’s at the Market

Vendors at the Producers Only Downtown Canton Farmers Market sell a wide variety of produce, meats, baked goods, and home-made products. You’ll find goat milk lotion from H & R’s All About Goats Farm, specialty mushrooms from Farmboy’s Fungi, fresh vegetables and herbs from Our Thyme Farm, cakes and pies from Hey Y’all Bakery, and more.
