The Market at Ag Heritage Park


COVID-19 ALERT:

In the interest of everyone’s health and safety, the Farmer’s Market at Ag Heritage Park has been postponed. While we tentatively plan to reopen June 4, we will make a decision in mid-May on the basis of the latest COVID-19 developments and public health recommendations.

The Farmer’s Market at Ag Heritage Park is important to us not only as a resource for fresh, locally grown products, but also for its support of local small businesses and farms. For this reason, we are eager to reopen as soon as we can do so in a way that is safe for patrons and merchants.


About the Market:

The Market is an open-air, growers-only farmers market that operates each Thursday, May-August, at Ag Heritage Park on the Auburn University campus. Hosted by the College of Agriculture, The Market features area vendors offering fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, herbs, ornamental plants and cut flowers as well as locally produced jams and jellies, baked goods, soaps, honey, goat cheese and more.

This Week’s Vendors

Now in its 14th season, The Market at Ag Heritage Park gives Auburn University employees and students and all area residents the opportunity to Buy Fresh, Buy Local, directly from the growers.

The weekly farmers market is open to the public, and everyone is welcome. It is held rain or shine, unless severe weather poses a danger to vendors and customers.

The Market first opened in 2004 and is a service of the Auburn University College of Agriculture in partnership with the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station.

The 2019 season will run from Thursday, May 2, to Thursday, Aug. 29. Hours are 3 to 6 p.m.
