Good food nourishes us, brings us together, and makes us happy. This core belief is what drives us to get up every morning and keep doing what we do. For over 30 years now.
Feeding our community
This has been both our anchor and guide throughout three decades of growth and change. We feed our community by:
- providing our neighbors with good, nutritious food
- creating a fun, safe environment to work and make friends
- taking an active role in the towns where we live and work
It’s one big circle. What we give comes back to us tenfold. We couldn’t ask for a more caring, supportive community of staff, neighbors, farmers, producers, and vendors.
At the end of the day, our business is about building relationships. The Farmers’ family is made up of long-time customers and employees, many of whom we’ve known for decades. It also includes our farmers and producers who we know personally, as well as our vendors and suppliers who keep things humming along.
Doing the right thing
We care about the people we serve. And we care about the process: what we charge for our products; what ingredients we use in our food; where our fruits and vegetables come from; and how we treat each other and our guests. This is what “doing the right thing” means to us. It’s one of our core values and informs everything we do, from our relationships with our staff to what we put on our shelves to our interactions with vendors and customers.
If you’re already part of the Farmers’ family, thank you for supporting our ever-evolving business. And if you are new to the Woodstock Farmers’ Market, we look forward to welcoming you at our stores in Woodstock and Waterbury.
Our mission for over 30 years has been to Feed Our Community by providing awesome food and great service. To us, service extends beyond the walls of the Market into the greater community. We actively contribute time, money, and information to help make Woodstock and Waterbury better places to live, work, and play.
We launched our Bring Your Own Bag program in 2016 as a way of encouraging our customers to use reusable bags when shopping at the Market. At the time, we envisioned a day when reusable bags would be used exclusively for shopping in Vermont. In 2020 we were thrilled that Vermont banned the use of plastic carryout bags in stores throughout the state. The Single-Use Products Law also requires that stores charge 10 cents per paper bag. All bag fees collected at the Market are donated to our local food shelves. So if you forget your reusable bag when you shop with us, at least you know that your paper bag fee is going to a good cause.
