The principle of “know your farmer, know your food,” is the watchword of the Lookout Farmers Market.

The market will be located at the historic Audubon Acres location on Sanctuary Drive across from the visitors center and will run every Friday through October.

Locally grown fresh produce, baked goods, grass-fed meats, free ranged eggs, herbs, breads, cakes, pastries, jam, nuts, doggie treats, fresh squeezed lemon aid, garden plants, candles, soap, botanicals, art,  jewelry, prepared foods and food carts will be featured as well as weekly entertainment, educational programs, and fun activities for everyone.

The Lookout Farmers Market strives to be accessible to everyone in the economically diverse East Brainerd community. VISA, MasterCard, and EBT/ transactions will be accepted. The Market is accepting SNAP/EBT cards to make organic fresh produce more affordable for low-income families.
