Get Fresh With Our 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.
