It’s the reason we do what we do. 

Always being hopeful for tomorrow and ready for today. 

Our Community

In Jefferson County and the surrounding area, you’ll find the past, present and future well represented with generational families that have been here for hundreds of years as well as new residents longing for a better life away from the hustle and bustle of the city living, working, creating and dreaming side by side. Jefferson County boasts a robust economy, a sense of historic discovery, and a wellspring for opportunity that has attracted much entrepreneurship and innovative thinking.  

It is in this environment that the seeds of what would become the Charles Town Farmers Market, and then the formation of the Jefferson Growers Artisans and Producers Coalition found the right nutrients to take hold and grow. Following that was the opening of Bushel & Peck: a downtown grocery, with the idea of bringing these attributes together: good food, local hospitality, and a sense of community.  

In the mix that is our vendors, volunteers, staff, customers, and supporters is a wonderful assortment of folks who are dedicated to local prosperity and an inclusive example of what can happen when people put community first.  

15+ Volunteers
