At the Dunkirk Farmers Market, a variety of fresh produce, preserves, nursery plants, honey and maple syrup are offered by Feinen Farms, Fred Farms, and Scott’s Farm. Gardens of Eternity creates natural lotions, salves, shampoos and more. Becki’s Bakery provides yeast breads and specialty fruit and nut breads. For Peate’s Sake Homestead offers local, free-range beef, pork, rabbit, chicken and eggs. They partner with Fred Farms and Becki’s Bakery to create meal deals each week. Stop at Stella’s Pierogi for a variety of hot or frozen pierogi. Starting in 2018, Siri Thai Food Truck will be at the market every second Wednesday.

The market accepts SNAP, and offers the Double Up program. Every dollar in SNAP swiped for shopping at the market (up to $20) will be doubled in Double Up tokens for the purchase of fresh fruits and vegetables. The market also accepts WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) vouchers, WIC VF and Fresh Connect checks.  While the Dunkirk Market only distributes Fresh Connect checks for the first two weeks of market, veterans and service members can obtain them from their Division of Veterans Affairs office, and produce vendors can accept them all season.

Every second Wednesday of the month offers a special event with music, Siri Thai Food Truck, kids activities, demonstrations and more:

COMMUNITY GARDENS
