The Owen County Farmers’ Market (OCFM) is committed to supporting locally grown and produced foods and bringing the very best and freshest of the season to our community.  At the OCFM you will find the very best seasonal produce, well cared for bed and garden plants, quality handmade crafts, and delicious ready to eat treats.  The OCFM is a producer only market so you can shake the hand of a farmer that grows your food and meet the artisan that made it by hand.

Join in the fun all season long as we bring family fun events, educational workshops, and demonstration to the OCFM.  Events like the Rise & Shine Farm to City 5k and youth fun runs, Pioneer Day, Kid’s Day, Farm to Table Dinner, and much more.  The OCFM presents live music each Saturday. Come shop for locally grown produce and handmade crafts while enjoying the sounds of local entertainment.
