Farmers' Markets

Municipality of Chester

We love farmers markets!

For the locally grown produce and the beautifully baked treats; for the hand crafted works of art and the locally created soaps and lotions; for the spirited liquids and that great cup of coffee to enjoy as we take it all in. It’s the loveliest way to wander through the weekend - to shop local and get fresh with the Municipality of Chester.
