The Poultry Swap has been growing each year and now includes much more than chickens. Our Farmer's Flea Market welcomes anything farm related, homemade, handcrafted, homegrown, vintage and recycled.
Copper Canyon Bluegrass will be playing from 9-1. They are sure to please with their playlist. From traditional bluegrass to newgrass to fun renditions of your favorite songs by artists like Marshall Tucker, Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead and many others.
Friends and Family are all helping make this day safe and a lot of fun! From preparing foods, traffic control, parking, vendor needs and even loose bird drama, we are here! Be sure to let someone know if you have a concern or a compliment. We all look forward to the swap and take pride in organizing such a beautiful event.
There will be lots of traditional farmer's market goodies. Area farms will be set up with their fresh produce, freshly butchered pork, lamb, beef, poultry and rabbit as well as cheeses, homemade yogurt, pies and baked items.
Bring a cooler.
As always, there will be a wide selection of poultry! as well as rabbits, pigs, goats and lambs. We always have lots of heritage turkeys and laying hens as well as unique breeds, rare birds, bantam chickens, peafowl, guineas, quail and waterfowl.
Be sure to get business cards or a receipt so you can contact the breeder with questions you may have later.
It's a good idea to bring boxes with ventilation holes or cages to transport new livestock and birds home. Many vendors bring them too, but they may run out.
Thank you so much for shopping our farmer's market. Every dollar you spend supports area farmers and hobbyists. It keeps them producing and keeps us hosting. We appreciate the business and will continue to improve the swap as we all grow.
Look for a few more food trucks this time around and more tasty treats.
