About Our Market
June 6 – October 24 (no market July 4)
Saturdays, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
With a nod to Oak Creek’s agricultural roots, the Oak Creek Farmers Market offers the best of a classic farmer’s market while being located in a contemporary community gathering space. Our wide-open market offers locally grown farm fresh foods, such as vine-ripened produce and fruits, cheeses, eggs, meats, honey, and flowers. Seasonal items, such as strawberries, apples, and sweetcorn, are also available at their peak of freshness. The proximity to Pizza Man, Cubanitas, and BelAir Cantina, as well as Gigi’s Cupcakes and Valentine Coffee, offers patrons a wide variety of food and beverage options to enjoy before, during, and after their time at the market.
A Message from the Market Manager
“Just like you, I can’t wait to get the market season started. We have 30 of the best farmers and vendors in the area signed up to attend our 20-week season. They are 100% committed to keeping your safety their top priority.
As we start on June 6, the market will look a little different and new rules and tips will be in place in an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy. Vendors will be separate and spread out all over the square, to allow customers room to walk. It might take a few minutes to find your favorite, as well as 8 new vendors for 2020. We need you, the customers and community, to follow the rules and tips approved by the City of Oak Creek Health Department.
We are excited to tell you about a new way to purchase items from the market. You can pre-order your products and then pick them up using our new drive-up area. We will be starting small, 10 vendors at a time, adding more each week. Please be patient, this is new to all of us. You can find more information about the drive-thru option below. Guidelines may change, so please check back here a few days prior to attending our market.”
