Sparta Farmers Market has always been committed to serving our community.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides over 45 million low-income Americans with monthly benefits that can be used to purchase most foods and beverages. Each year program participants spend roughly $70 billion in SNAP benefits, including more than $22.4 million at farmers markets in 2017. While SNAP helps low-income Americans purchase food, the program also supports farmers and farmers markets in all 50 states.

The Sparta Farmers Market is managed and owned by a chef.

At the very core of Sparta Farmers Market is the belief that Sussex County produces WORLD CLASS products used by some of the best chefs in the world.

Sparta Farmers Market has always been a supporter of local artists and musicians.

Starting in 2021 Sparta Farmers Market will launch Busker U. A common place where local musicians can perform and "play for their dinner". Sparta Farmers Market will provide PA system, power, tent and of course an awesome audience. Any musicians looking to perform should send a sample to market management: spartanjfarmmarket@gmail.com
