1) To provide consumers a venue for them to purchase locally grown and produced foods, plants, art, and handcrafted items.
2) To provide local farmers/growers/artisans an opportunity to sell directly to the local public.
3) To provide a place for non-profit groups to educate and fundraise.
4) To accomplish this in a healthy and family-friendly manner.
