Rooted in family fun
The Farmers Market’s roots go back to 1926, when it was a livestock auction. Farmers came from all over to find the finest livestock around. Today, the Farmers Market features indoor and outdoor facilities and more than 400 vendors selling everything under the sun. There are toys, home décor, clothing for the whole family, spices, hats, sun glasses, collectibles, Amish specialties, flowers, fresh fruit and vegetables, and the list goes on and on. Many of our vendors have been selling their products at Cowtown for over 30 years. They’re an important part of the Cowtown Farmers Market family.
Many family businesses
Cowtown vendors are the best. They sell high-quality merchandise and really care about their customers. Many of our vendors are entire families who work together at Cowtown every week. There’s Marcus and his wife who sell perfume, Dan and his family who outfit us in great shirts, the Byler family’s (HUGE) pretzels, Dave and his family from Auburn Road Vineyard and Winery, the Millers who run a scrumptious food stand, and so many more. Does bringing the family business to Cowtown sound like something you might like to do? If so, you’re in luck as new vendors are always welcome.

Howard “Stoney” Harris first started a rodeo in Woodstown, NJ in 1929. In 1961 Howard (Stoney’s son) bought Cowtown Rodeo, the livestock auction, farmers market, 1,200 acres of land and a 2,500 seat arena from his father. A new 4,000 seat arena, still in use today, was built in 1967. Your seat is waiting. In fact, bring the whole family to experience a taste of the Wild West.
