Milk Lady Markets

Gigi Goin is the driving force behind the network of fresh produce markets and food festivals that live under the Milk Lady Markets umbrella. Born in Trinidad, Gigi grew up around an abundance of produce markets, farms, and home gardens. It instilled in her a lifelong appreciation for farmers and the need for consumers to be closely connected to food producers. And in 2010, her love of fresh, healthy food—Gigi was a vegan for 12 years and is now a pescetarian—spurred her to create Milk Lady Markets, which comprises multiple producer-only farmers' markets throughout Montgomery County. The organization also oversees festivals throughout the year, including the annual Strawberry Festival in late spring.

Customer Reviews

It was a cold and blustery day when we went to the Briggs Chaney-Greencastle Farmers Market, but there was still live entertainment, which was nice. The puppet lady was great with my daughter. I was surprised that she was not selling the puppets, but simply there to educate and entertain. Even though there were only two produce sellers, we found everything we had hoped to buy. So the market was smaller than I expected, but the entertainment perks were great and the folks were very friendly.
