Your favorite farmers market kicks off again on Saturday, March 5th in a new spot – 524 North MLK – on the grass under the pecan trees and still in the heart of Tallahassee’s historic Frenchtown neighborhood. We’re looking forward to making new memories and growing into something that defines Frenchtown as a player in economic equality and sustainable business.
We’re still intent on improving health outcomes through fresh food access, building on partnerships with UF/IFAS Leon County Extension Office Family Nutrition Program, Kids Incorporated, FAMU Institute of Public Health, and other health activists hard at work. This year, when we open, we’ll stay open. Getting our hands dirty and living the dream.
Come see us, come sell with us. Eat Fresh, Eat Local and Grow Community!
In 2014 and 2015, we set up on the plaza named for Tallahassee Police Department’s first Black officer, Fred Douglas Lee, Sr.
The neighborhood has a rich heritage of fertile ground and social activism. Frenchtown Heritage Marketplace is working to revive and restore Frenchtown’s culture of commerce and community so important to the fabric of this Capital City.
Join us for the freshest local produce and featured food items that are unique to this market. Check our vendor page for the scoop on your favorite local food sellers, recipes and links to more information.
Frenchtown Heritage Marketplace is the only farmers market in the Capital City area to offer centralized EBT access. Use your SNAP benefits (formerly “food stamps”) here! The market is also the ONLY place that can double SNAP dollars on the purchase of fresh produce, live plants and local honey. The grocery store, the dollar store, not even Walmart can do that for you. It’s easy! Stop by the market and ask us how it works.
Join our mailing list for weekly features and special events. And stay tuned for news on Frenchtown Heritage Fest 2015! The much anticipated street party kicks off on Saturday, October 3rd.
Our local farmers and food artists are always cooking up something new. You don’t want to miss the latest flavor adventures from Marie’s Jam & Jelly, Williams Gourmet, Frenchtown Beez and Chef Shac.
Find out which variety of delicious nutrition Deacon Duffee, Sanguon’s Organic, Seedtime Harvest, iGrow Whatever You Like (a program of Tallahassee Food Network) and 50 Large have just pulled from the ground. You can’t get fresher than FHM!
