The Cheverly Community Market is committed to offering a vibrant market that strengthens the community through providing fresh, nutritious food from local sources, and encouraging unique local businesses and arts. We create an atmosphere that fosters community, inclusivity, and educational activities, while encouraging local economy. Vendors’ fees cover only a portion of the costs of operating the Market. In an effort to keep vendors’ fees as low as possible, Cheverly Community Market seeks sponsors to ensure that we’re able to bring fresh, local food to the community and the community to fresh, local food. Prospective sponsors are evaluated by the Board to ensure there is no direct conflict with the Market’s mission.
