Vermillion Area Farmer’s Market

We are going to end the drive-through market. As much as we had hoped it would increase safety, it seems to have increased risk in other areas. The market will be all walking as usual. We apologize for any inconvenience. However, we encourage those in high-risk populations to contact vendors in advance to order for the week.

Saturday markets are returning! Look for us the last Saturday of each month!

• September 26th

From 9am - 12:00 pm at the Platz, downtown Vermillion
