Winter Farmers Market

Every January, Calvary hosts Faith in Place's Winter Farmers Market in the Parish Hall. (2019's market will be held on January 20.) The markets provide an additional source of income for local vendors during the off-season, promote sustainable farming methods and economic justice for regional farm families, encourage healthy, wholesome eating, and support the building of relationships between producers and consumers.
