Sustainable Nantucket’s Farmers and Artisans Market is designed to support and strengthen our traditional industry of agriculture; to support the local economy and encourage entrepreneurs; to help keep downtown vital and to enhance our experience of community. All vendors are seasonal or year round residents of Nantucket, and all goods sold are grown or produced on the island. Vendors include growers, artisans, and prepared food purveyors. There are live music performances, kids’ activity tables, demonstrations and more. Visitors to the market have noted a “street festival” atmosphere that welcomes year round residents and visitors alike to shop, mingle and enjoy the downtown experience.
