This Week at DFM: May 21
We are so thrilled to have you shop our market! Each week we see more and more shoppers enjoying the fruits (proteins, baked and specialty products;)) of our vendors’ labor! Please be assured that our vendors are completely vetted, having to comply with the DFM standards of 100% locally grown and produced. Additionally, as you read through our vendors page on our website, you will see that most have a number of qualifying certifications that we are proud to highlight!
While you are shopping at the DFM this Saturday, please ask the vendor questions and learn about the hard work that goes into your favorite product. You will be so impressed and your DFM products will taste, smell and feel even better!
eat fresh, eat local
