Farmers’ Market FAQ

Q: Do all Market Farmers’ use ‘sustainable’ practices?

A: Not necessarily. 

The majority of farmers at OTFM do not use synthetic fertilizers or synthetic pesticides and all are working towards better practices. We also have Market Standards in place that prevent artificial ingredients from being used in any artisan foods meant for human consumption. 
Grass-fed beef and lamb, pastured pork and poultry are available, and the farm fresh eggs are predominately pastured with their supplemental feed being either Certified Organic or free of conventionally grown ingredients.

Today more than ever consumer’s expectations for food quality and safety is at the forefront of their purchasing decisions and shopping at a Farmers’ Market is no different.
