Opened since 2010, this buzzing marketplace serves as the center of the city’s local food sourcing. A huge hit with patrons, the Friday Farmers Market averages more than 40 vendors per week, showcasing a variety of produce, artisan crafts, baked goods, and more. Rain or shine, hundreds of visitors make their way to The Landing each week to check out the vast offerings, ranging from pottery and plants to jewelry and heirlooms.

Looking for fresh bread, barbecue ribs, or fresh granola? You’ll find all that and more while meandering these quarters, so be sure to come with an open mind and an eager appetite.
From week to week, vendors and shoppers gather weekly to sift through the fresh and specially made goods.
