“This is a first-generation farm, and we are young farmers. My husband and I met at The Ohio State University where we were both studying Agriculture. Shortly after we were married, we bought our 55-acre farm here in Warren County and built our home on it. We both came from a background of being in 4-H, and we carried that passion to a degree in Agriculture.
“We both work off-farm jobs in agriculture to support our farming habit at this time but our goal is to eventually have one of us retire to the farm full time. We operate around 100 acres total and raise grass-fed beef, all natural Berkshire pork, grass-fed Katahdin lambs, and free-range poultry and eggs.”
Only the farm’s beef will be offered at the 2nd Street Market.
The 2nd Street Market is located in a renovated freight house at 600 E. Second St. at Webster Street, just east of downtown Dayton, and features a variety of local growers, producers, artisans and prepared-food vendors. It was named the "Best Farmers Market" in the 2016 Best of Ohio Readers' Ballot conducted by Ohio Magazine.
The market is open Thursday and Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Carroll Creek Farms is a Saturday-only vendor.

Should downtown’s 2nd Street Market expand?
