Meet the FMoT Owners
The Farmer's Market on Tamina was born out of a love for food, all things local and entrepreneurship.
Owners of The Culinary Courtyard, Jennifer and Craig Lobel, wanted to provide a reliable source of traffic for their tenants at their "off the beaten path" location and loved the idea of having a small pop-up market on the adjacent property to do just that. Jennifer set out to find the vendors that would make her little market the place to be.
Earlier in the 2016, Jennifer was a holding a party at the Kitchen on Tamina (another of her business ventures) and happened to meet Stacy Edelen by way of mutual friends. They immediately found a shared loved for small business and entrepreneurship and began making plans for a business they could start together.
The Farmer's Market on Tamina officially opened on October 1st, 2016 with 24 vendors and a complimentary mimosa which has quickly become our signature. We pride ourselves on creating a family amongst our vendors and a community with our shoppers. We've been growing and passing out a unique cocktail from the Welcome Roost every Saturday (rain or shine) ever since.
Our goal was to start off small and stay committed to local farmers, ranchers and fishermen with quality produce, meats and seafood. We welcome true artisans with quality, handmade products, and bakers who can’t wait to share their delicious talents with the public. We are excited for entrepreneurs who know they have the best sauce, jelly or jam, and other specialties that make our taste buds happy. We are lucky to now be surrounded by 40-60 of this awesome vendors (depending on the weekend and season).
