Farmers’ Market at Summit Lake

Every Tuesday evening from June 7 to September 27, visitors can enjoy beautiful, fresh produce from the Summit Lake Neighborhood Farmers’ Market. This market has been operating at Summit Lake since 205 and continues to expand each season. Residents of Summit Lake grow their own vegetables, herbs and fruit. Some of these are used to make pickles, jams, jellies and baked goods throughout the year. Residents directly benefit from the farmers’ market by selling their produce or gaining access to fresh food that may otherwise not be available in their neighborhood. We look forward to seeing you at the next market!
