The Fairfield Farmers Market was started in 2016 by local restaurant owner Bill Auer in collaboration with Mark Barnhart and the Fairfield Economic Development Commission. “Folks love the farmers market and appreciate the variety and high quality of the products. Shopping local is a great way to support local farms and businesses, and it’s a fun community gathering at the same time,” says Auer.
