The market was started in 2003, and at the time, it was one of only five markets in the Cincinnati area. Today there are over 35 and counting. In the beginning, a local resident that made jams and jellies contacted a few farmers with the idea of starting a market in Deerfield Township. Four area farmers thought it was a great location, and they joined together. Since then, it has continued to grow, and now there are now over 15 vendors selling.
For eight years the market was held at the old township office building on Montgomery Rd. It was later moved to the beautiful Kingswood Park, where there is plenty of green space and a large parking area. There has been great support and encouragement from the local residents and the market continues to grow and expand.
In 2013, the market hired its first market manager. This brought ideas and activities to the market that we did not have in the past. Now you can find music, kids activities, and special events running frequently at the market. What started out as a commitment to quality, local, freshness and honesty continues to blossom. With a wonderful location and dedicated community members, the market is becoming a gathering place on Saturday morning for neighbors and families. It is an exciting time to be at the Deerfield Farmers Market!
