Welcome to Growers and Graziers!
Growers & Graziers is a collaborative farmers market located in St. Marys, Kansas. The market is made up of local small-scale producers. It is a venue for producers to sell their products directly to consumers using a model of year-round access, not dependent on weather or season as the market is indoors.
The primary focus of this endeavor is to encourage alternatives to our current system of dependence on industrial farming and the ‘food’ that it produces. Much of our philosophy may seem backward to some (regenerative farming, food preservation without refrigeration, etc. ), but for us, we see this as the only way forward. Growing food that is filled with nutrition, preserving and preparing that food to maintain its nutrient value and working closely with God daily is our business model. We are also driven to encourage local families to return to the practice of producing food for themselves and for their neighbors. We can be a resource for them too.
There is no lack of people looking to buy healthy local food; but there is a critical shortage of people producing it! We are already having difficulty keeping locally produced food on the shelves. Feeling called to be a Grower and/or a Grazier, let us know! God willing, we hope to see backyards bursting with nutrition!
Almost equal to our primary focus on growing food, is that of supplying our community with nutritious and delicious foods.
Products currently at the market include:
-seasonal fruits and vegetables
