PFC Virtual Farmers Market

Welcome to the PFC Virtual Farmers Market, a registry of our local farms, CSAs, artisans, and small businesses. These are the producers and vendors that PFC will want to provide a marketplace for when we are open and these are the types of businesses you would likely see at a farmers market. Please support these businesses since their business models are affected by social distancing and they need the support of their community more than ever, especially with market season approaching.
