A NOTE ABOUT 2019 MARKET CHANGES
Our market has operated on Saturday afternoons for several seasons. As we examined our mission and growth over the years, we realized that our regular time wasn’t the best for both our patrons and our vendors. Our main mission as a market is to make food more accessible to our community by offering affordable fresh and locally grown foods and produce to our residents. But, without enough vendors, our market was falling short of our main goal.
With a drive to increase the number of vendors while providing a time that works for our patrons, we decided to move our market to a Tuesday evening. This decision was made through the input of our community alongside our market advisory committee, members of the LU staff, and the market manager.
In 2019, the Lawrenceville Farmers Market successfully moved from a Saturday afternoon to a Tuesday evening. This change allowed the market to adjust to the needs of its community with the addition of several new vendors and larger community events.
ABOUT THE MARKET
Lawrenceville Farmers’ Market is a non-profit program of Lawrenceville United managed by a seasonal market manager and a volunteer advisory committee. We are committed to increasing food access in our community, to growing local agricultural businesses for long-term sustainability, and providing a vibrant gathering space for the Lawrenceville community.

The mission of the Lawrenceville Farmers Market is to provide access to fresh, locally- produced foods for all Lawrenceville residents and visitors in an inclusive, vibrant, and safe community space. The Market aims to lower barriers to fresh, healthy food especially for low-income families, older adults, and individuals with food insecurity or low food access and to support the development of a strong and sustainable local food system with farmers and small business owners through incentive programs, community education, and outreach in the neighborhoods we serve.
The Market is open every Tuesday from June through October from 4-7pm in Arsenal Park, near the 40th Street entrance. The Lawrenceville Farmers Market is a program of Lawrenceville United (LU). Lawrenceville United is an inclusive, resident-driven non-profit organization that works to improve and protect the quality of life for all Lawrenceville residents.
The market is managed by a Lawrenceville United staff person who reports to LU and receives support from the Lawrenceville Farmers’ Market Advisory Committee (LFMAC). The Lawrenceville Farmers’ Market Advisory Committee is open to all residents and stakeholder who have an interest in the operation and management of the market.
