We Are Open Every Saturday, May to Nov. 20, 2021

Hello and welcome! We are currently in the planning phase for this upcoming market season. We will open on Saturday, May 1st and will continue through October 30th before changing to our winter market format (details TBD). Our operating hours will stay the same… 9am-12:30pm. We will still require all customers, vendors and volunteers to wear masks at all times while in the market space and to encourage social distancing… hopefully these COVID policies can “go by the wayside” as soon as possible

The Band

The musician this Saturday will be One Man Jazz Band. A grateful Montgomery Farmers Market welcomes David Freeman.

Food Truck

YES !!!, This Saturday, there will be a mobile food truck at the market.

Marty Meersman, owner and artisan of Marty’s Waffles, is a Cincinnati native. After living in Seattle (WA), Austin (TX), and Moorhead (MN), he and his family are now at home in the rolling hills of Alexandria, Kentucky. He comes to the food truck profession after a 16-year teaching career as a college professor, both in Minnesota and Kentucky. He also comes from an extended family that found every possible reason to celebrate anything with great food, especially baked goods. Having grandparents of Italian descent on one side and French and Belgian on the other, great food was always the center of every occasion. Whether it was family visiting town, a birthday, a holiday, we were fortunate that there was always a huge spread of food shared by all.

Russo’s Ravioli

In the 1940’s, families sat down and enjoyed each other’s company at the dinner table. Stories were shared, meals were prepared together and of course, no one was staring at the phone! We want to bring families back to that dinner table with our handmade raviolis. We have been pursuing this dream using our family recipes that date back to Fortes Spaghetti House on Monmouth St.

Everything at Russo’s Ravioli is done by hand. We make our dough, fillings, sauces and lasagnas all from scratch. We carefully source the best ingredients locally and follow the traditions passed down to us.

We’re proud to be a family business serving the same product for 70 years. We want to solidify that Russo’s Ravioli has a permanent place in Cincinnati’s present and future culture. We want to create jobs in the city that my family has called home for almost a century. From milestone celebrations to a simple Tuesday night dinner, let Russo’s Ravioli be a part of it.

Thanks to the generous donation of a patron, we now have a music tent that can be used as a meeting and eating place for customers of the market (when it is not being used by the band).

Montgomery Farmers Market Bags

Reusable Market Bags Available With Your Favorite Vendors!  

The Market is beginning a new environmental effort this week to reduce the use of plastic bags, and we need your help.

Here’s how it works. When you buy something from a vendor who usually puts your purchase in a plastic handle bag, they will offer you a FREE colorful market bag. We hope you will use it instead, and bring it back each week when you come to the Market.

MFM is joining with other markets in our region, and with CORV, to reduce the use of plastic, which has become a world-wide environmental problem. We received a grant from Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District for 80% of the cost of the bags. MFM is paying the rest, so there is no cost to you or your favorite vendors.

There are so many wonderful options at the market during this time of the year. Sometimes it makes it difficult to make a choice!

Lots of options to choose among… give them a try on Saturday!

See ’em all at farmers and food artisans

A friendly reminder to our dog-loving friends to keep dogs on a leash and maintain control of them at all times while visiting the Market. Also keep the temperature in mind as the asphalt can get extra hot. More than anything, we want to be sure that all of our visitors (both 2- and 4-legged!) and vendors have a safe and enjoyable time at the Market.

We appreciate your cooperation and support.
