    1. Hi, Mariah! Farmview Market is open all year, but their open air farmer’s market is open through early fall (usually ending sometime in October); they leave the dates open-ended to allow for varying weather conditions. Farmview Market’s classes also vary but are offered year-round; you can see their class schedule at https://farmviewmarket.com/classes/!
