Creating community space. We are in the midst of reviving the old Bradford Inn at 11 West Main Street, helping to create a local food and community resource center alongside partners and building owners, Unless, LLC. With tremendous community support and the collaboration of many minds and skillsets, it's all coming together!

While we have grown into a year-round market, our hours do change seasonally. Stay tuned in here for current information.
Our journey into retail distribution of local goods began in the summer of 2015 when we opened for business at Sweet Beet Farm Stand, a seasonal roadside stand and market outlet for Sweet Beet Farm and other local producers. After two years in the stand we had an opportunity to move shop to an old inn on the other side of town and become part of something bigger - the revival of a town icon and creation of a new community space.
From farm stand to market, Sweet Beet's primary goals have been to create a new reliable market channel for local producers and to increase local food access for our community. Read more about it.
We envision a local food economy that thrives on community partnerships and values healthy food and farms.
Community. Access. Viability.
