Welcome to The Market at Ag Heritage Park
The Market at Ag Heritage Park is hosted by the College of Agriculture at Auburn University each summer. The market is every Thursday from 3-6 p.m.
This summer, the market runs through Aug. 25, 2022. Vendors change weekly based on produce availability. Vendors this year have included Granite Knoll Farms from Waverly; Well’s Produce from Cottonwood; Macy’s Favorites Dog Treats from Auburn; Paradise Plants from Opelika; Leo’s Produce from Tallasee; Hale Farms from Clanton; Jimmy Dykes “The Corn Man” from Beulah; Longshore Farms goats milk and soaps; Pulliam Farms from Lafayette; AL Hooks Produce from Shorter; Flowers to Bless from Lafayette; Maywick Candles from Valley; Lee County Master Gardeners; and the Cake Lady. In total, nearly 30 different vendors are present through the summer.
The market has steps in place to ensure every vendor is a true farmer or grower from surrounding counties. The purpose of the market is to help those farmers, by connecting them will local consumers. It’s a win-win, because it puts fresher produce in the hands of local shoppers.
Market director Mark Foshee promises, “The quality is bar-none. I don’t care what grocery store you go to — my farmers will beat their quality tenfold.”
