Welcome to old world charm and simple living


Our community market is small and intimate, and provide local Hopefielders with an affordable, ethical and friendly way of doing business -  both buying and selling -  within a unique setting.  

Our market sells locally harvested, seasonal produce,  free range chickens along with artisan sour dough breads and made-with-love pastries.


It is a place to touch ground, slow down,  breathe deeply and belly laugh!

We open our doors EVERY Saturday of the year from 10:00 - 14:00.


We believe in...






Expect to meet our market community -  this is where we go to catch up with friends - new and old
