Farmer's Market 2024

Shop Farmer's Market Collection

June 04, 2024 - October 29, 2024

Every Tuesday this summer—rain or shine—you can shop at the SOAR Farmers Market on the MCA Plaza. This year, the MCA Counter will be participating along with the MCA Store. Enjoy special homemade soups including several from Jason Hammel’s new cookbook, Lula Cafe Cookbook, along with fun food-related products.

Designed by Lauren DiCioccio for Open Editions, these reusable totes celebrate the nationwide effort to ban the plastic, single-use shopping bag. Made from 100% recycled fabric, they are sturdy, washable, and intended for daily use.
