We Support our Local Farmers!
Hamilton celebrates local farmers with weekly community farmers markets and a year round market downtown. Hamilton chefs source local food for their farm-fresh to table menu. Talking with the people who grow our food at the farmers market is a wonderful conversation with neighbors!
