Our History

The Cheverly Community Market was founded in 2007. Local resident Crystal Lal and a small group of committed friends and neighbors wanted to have access to good, fresh food in the neighborhood and develop relationships with local growers and producers. Finding locally grown food in Cheverly has been a great challenge. We've grown accustomed to trips to distant farmer's markets and CSAs, but soaring fuel prices and a growing awareness of the importance of being a "locavore" created a desire for a farmer's market within walking distance of most Cheverly homes. That interest in a deeper relationship with and understanding of locally sourced food led the group to form the Cheverly Community Market.

 

The Market has grown from four vendors in 2007 to about twenty today. The Market is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors representing expertise in agriculture, business, communications, government, education and food.
