DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Dayton farmers market celebrated the kickoff of its 2024 season with a community celebration.

Saturday, May 11 was the annual Shiloh Church Community Celebration and opening of the Shiloh Farmers’ Market on Philadelphia Drive.

The market has been running for more than 20 years. Each Saturday, vendors set up booths selling fresh produce, food, art and other wares.

“There are a lot of food deserts in this area, so having a farmer’s market in this area is extremely important,” Market Manager Tasha Noggle said. “We want the community to know that we are here for them.”

Charlie Cressell, local farmer and owner of Cressell’s Natural Produce, has been selling his wide variety of organic produce at the market for eight years. Cressell said farmers markets help customers feel confident in the food they’re buying.

“A lot of people don’t know where their food comes from,” Cressell said. “So you can go right to the grower, to the farmer and ask him how you grow your stuff. That gives it gives you more information and everybody likes fresh produce.”

Noggle said the market also gives both new and established small business owners a chance to showcase what they have to offer.

For the last two years, Noggle’s son Malik Sene has set up his own booth called Three Brothers Stop and Shop, selling small toys and other specialty items.

“It’s been very good out here and I’ve loved being out here, seeing all of these new faces,” Sene said.

The Shiloh Farmers’ Market runs every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Oct. 19 rain or shine.
