The Moscow Farmers Market operates every Saturday, May through October from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Downtown Moscow. This Saturday event celebrates local farmers, artisans, and musicians by providing them with an opportunity to interact directly with the community and its visitors. Highlights include farmed and/or created agricultural products (e.g., crops, meat, cheese, wine, etc.), distinctive handmade goods, artisan pieces, and original-recipe cuisine. This venue is meant to encourage and support sustainable economic, social, and environmental practices. The Market has been a treasured and vibrant part of the community since its inception in 1976 as a small grass-roots gathering.
