The history of Centre Markets is strongly rooted in the fabric of the small farms and farmers markets of Centre County.
Centre Markets originally started as collaborative marketing effort between several local farmer's markets. Boalsburg and North Atherton Farmers Markets (NAFM) spearheaded the effort to apply and manage a marketing grant from the Happy Valley Visitors Bureau.
In light of the COVID oubreak and associated supply chain and community health concerns, NAFM Board member Sabine Carey founded Centre Markets LLC In spring of 2020. This allowed the creation of the online market, and facilitated the connection of local farmers to our community at the height of the pandemic. Sabine continues to run Centre Markets, as well as her own local flower farm, Full Circle Farms.
Centre Markets is now an independent woman-owned business working with more than 40 local farmers and food artisans. We're passionate about supporting beginning and minority-owned businesses. Our partnership with Nature's Pantry Natural Food Store is just one of the collaborations that strengthens our community ties.
