About Us

In the Beginning!

The original Belvidere Farmer’s Market and Crafts opened in 1987 as the Hometown Market. Today, the Belvidere Farmer's Market and Crafts is now the only Farmer's Market in Boone County. The original Market was held on Saturday’s in the Blackhawk State Bank Parking lot.


The Market has moved locations and changed many time over the past years.  It is now located in the parking lot at the Dodge Lanes Bowling Alley.

The Freshest Produce is at the Market

Our Farmer's are your friends and neighbors who are working hard to supply locally grown fruits and vegetables at our Market for you to buy.

Our Farmers welcome questions on how their crops were raised.  Who is your favorite farmer? 


We invite you to visit our Market on Saturdays and discover a new way to buy your produce.
