Welcome

Chester Farmers & Artisan Market is Online

Our Chester Farmers & Artisan Market is now taking Online Orders. Click here to shop our Square Store, Chester Farmers & Artisan Square Site

Ordering will open Sundays at 9 am and close Tuesdays at 12 noon. Ordering may be closed earlier if needed.

We will be adding more of our vendors and their products as they become available.

Our Market is excited to offer this online marketplace in co-operation with our Market vendors. Our goals are: 

1) to continue providing our community access to healthy, locally-produced food and products through an easy and efficient online service

2) to provide our Market vendors with the opportunity to continue serving their customers and ensure that the money spent on their products goes back to them and stays in our local economy

By ordering online you are ensuring that our Market vendors and our Chester Farmers’ & Artisan Market stay in business during these unprecedented times. Thank you for your support.

How it works:

Shop from our fantastic local vendors and pick up your orders Friday afternoons. Ordering opens Sundays at 9 am. Our producers have two days to pick, bake, make, and pack your orders. They arrive Friday morning to pack your order bag. Orders are available for pick up at the Charles E Church Recreational Center (Chester Rink) 190 Pig Loop Rd Fridays 12:30pm-3:30pm.

Building and managing our new Online Shop requires additional transaction fees, supplies, rent, and ongoing human resources. Our focus has been on creating an online marketplace that serves our customers’ needs while making sure as much money as possible goes directly to our producers that are selling their products through this platform. There are a small 4% transaction cost and a $5 packing fee with each order. Please scroll to the end of the item list and click on the $5 packing fee. We thank you for your understanding and support for our local producers and market.

During the COVID19 pandemic, we will be following NSHA requirements – limiting the number of vendors dropping off orders at any one time, limiting the number of customers for pick up, and offering the option of texting the market when you arrive and having us bring your order to your vehicle. The demand for delivery to vehicles is high and sometimes there is a wait  – we appreciate your patience.
