The annual Barrington Farmers’ Market features fresh fruits and vegetables, organics, meats, eggs, flowers, pastries, cheeses, seafood, and more!

In 2018 the market has undergone a revitalization in hopes of building a new food system, fostering entrepreneurship, and encouraging community.

The Farmers’ Market aims to accomplish this by functioning as a small-scale incubator for local food vendors; creating a site for civic engagement and entertainment; raising the profile for the Village neighborhood; and selling goods and building relationships with neighbors.
