WHAT IS THE MISSION OF THE MARLTON FARMERS MARKET?

The Market is a place where local farmers and producers of sustainable food and other products sell their goods and build relationships with consumers; where residents can come to see and meet their neighbors and enjoy local food and entertainment; while contributing to and participating in their Evesham Township community.

The Market aims to provide an outlet for delivering nutritious and locally produced foods to all members of our community. Beyond the transactions between vendors and customers, the Market intends to serve the community by raising the profile of downtown Marlton, reinforcing a positive image of Evesham Township, and creating a site for civic engagement and entertainment.

The primary goals of the Market are to:

• Build an Alternative Food System: The Market is an outlet for direct sales of nutritious and locally produced foods without the need for products to travel long distances and without large corporate “middlemen”.

• Foster Entrepreneurship and Support Family and Small-Scale Food Producers: The Market functions as an incubator for small-scale, local entrepreneurs, especially those in the food sector.

• Build Community:  The Market serves the community by raising the profile of downtown Marlton, reinforcing a positive image of Evesham Township, and creating a site for civic engagement and entertainment.
