Market News and Note from the Manager

Rutherford BARN, a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization operates the Rutherford County Farmers Market  with the express intention of assisting in the development of a vibrant, sustainable, local food system that will be able to nourish most of the residents of Rutherford County. We believe in the importance of shopping local, and are devoted to increasing the ease with which our residents are able to procure the healthiest, freshest, and most nutritious foods available. We believe in the necessity of developing our local economy, and the importance of keeping as much of our residents’ money in the local economy as possible. We believe in providing an equitable space for farmers and gardeners alike to sell their products, focusing on creating a non-discriminatory, welcoming, and inclusive environment. We believe in the right for our customers to shop without stigma or judgement, and thus provide a SNAP/EBT token system designed to minimize the differences between SNAP users and credit/debit users.
