As always, the real stars of the Seville Farm Market will be the fresh fruits and vegetables, jams and jellies, honey and maple syrup, breads and pies, cookies and crafts, homemade dog treats, flowers, perennials, hand-made furniture, and even knife-sharpening services, presented by skilled local vendors.

Sponsored by the Seville Lions Club, the market takes place 9 a.m. to noon each Saturday through Sept. 24, rain or shine. Vendors will set up in Stanhope Park and on West Main Street, which will be closed to traffic during the market. Adjacent parking is available at the park and at Seville United Methodist Church, located at 74. W. Main St., through its High Street entrance. Look for the parking signs.

Vendor opportunities are open not only to professional producers in the Seville area, but also to talented home bakers and crafters, as well as gardeners who have plants and extra produce to sell. We are always looking for new vendors and local entertainers. We offer a great atmosphere, a beautiful setting with ample space, and one of the lowest vendor fees in the area. Please contact us for details.

The purpose of the Seville Farm Market is to foster a sense of community by offering locally produced foods and handcrafted items in a setting that promotes eating seasonal foods and encourages a connection between the public and those who grow their food.

We are grateful to the many community supporters who make the Seville Farm Market possible, including: The Seville Lions Club, the Village of Seville, and Seville United Methodist Church.
