We are strongly rooted in the fabric of the small farms and farmers markets of Centre County.
Centre Markets originally started as collaborative marketing effort between several local farmer's markets. Boalsburg and North Atherton Farmers Markets (NAFM) spearheaded the effort to apply and manage a marketing grant from the Happy Valley Visitors Bureau.
In light of the COVID oubreak and associated supply chain and community health concerns, NAFM Board member Sabine Carey founded Centre Markets LLC In spring of 2020. This allowed the creation of the online market, and facilitated the connection of local farmers to our community at the height of the pandemic.
At this point, Centre Markets has a loyal community following, and is working with close to 40 local farmers. While we started with a pickup location at the Boalsburg Farmers Market, we also spent a winter packing orders at the Boalsburg Fire Hall, before finding a more permanent partnership with Nature's Pantry Natural Food Store.
