They also say people get a product unmatched in quality and freshness.

"Quality of produce and stuff that there's out here, it's just phenomenal," said Rick Buckley, owner of Buckley Honey Farm. "It's all mostly local-grown stuff, and you can't beat it."

The farmers' market had been closed since December. 

It's now open from 10 a.m . to 2 p.m. every Saturday through Dec. 17.
