The Wagner Farm Arboretum Farmers’ Market in Warren


Most people head to the Wagner Farm Arboretum in Warren for outdoor recreation. After all, the facility sits on approximately 93 acres of land, where you can hang out with your friends, volunteer, or attend one of the events the arboretum hosts.

One of these events is the Farmers’ Market held in the arboretum grounds every year. Although it doesn’t a fixed date (it mostly depends on the organizers), Wagner Farm Arboretum’s Farmers’ Market is a great place to experience local life and mingle with residents.

I’ve listed down some of the things I love about the arboretum’s farmers’ market, and I hope these reasons will entice you to pay it a visit once it opens this year.

  1. There is a wide variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables. One of the best ways to support the economy of a community is to patronize local products, and that includes the locally grown fruits and vegetables. The arboretum’s Farmers’ Market is a great place to source fresh fruits and vegetables from the farmers themselves.Aside from getting the chance to interact with the local farmers and gardeners, it’s just convenient to source fresh ingredients from the market, especially if you live nearby. Not only are you helping the community, you’re also bringing good food to your very own table.
  2. Meat and poultry are also offered. Some of the folks who participate in the market also tend to their own livestock. If you’re not too keen on buying your meat and poultry from the supermarket, take advantage of the Wagner Farm Arboretum’s Farmers’ Market to get fresh meat without any gimmicks.Building rapport with the local farmers will also give you peace of mind that your meat, poultry, and other fresh ingredients are tended to and grown to a high standard.
  3. Spices? Sauces? You name it, they’ve got it. Your meals aren’t complete without a dash of your favorite seasonings and sauces. There are a bunch of local entrepreneurs who make their own sauces and vinaigrettes from scratch, and they’re oozing with flavor! Other things you can buy at the Farmers’ Market include high-quality Italian olive oils, balsamic vinegar, as well as special rub mixes for your meat and poultry.
  4. Treat yourself to artisanal and specialty products. The Wagner Farm Arboretum’s Farmers’ Market is a great place to purchase freshly prepared food items such as bread and pasta, but the real treat are the artisanal and specialty products available, lovingly made by the local entrepreneurs. These products range from specialty Polish food, pickles, nuts, jams, salsas, dried fruit, and even top-quality local honey.

The Wagner Farm Arboretum’s Farmers’ Market usually runs for several months. There is no date yet for 2017, but we’ll keep you posted on the date and the location.
