Store Owner, Joe Petrucelli
His love of the area and desire to strengthen the community of local farmers drove Joe to create Meyers Falls Market in 2002. He purchased the east end of the "Old Apple Warehouse" and began to completely renovate the old building, slowly transforming it into the market you see today. After a year of hard work, Joe opened the doors of Meyers Falls Market in September of 2002.
Now, over a decade later, Meyers Falls has become the epicenter of the "go local" movement. We continued our commitment to nurture a healthy, vibrant community with the addition of the new Community Connection Room (upstairs from the market) in spring of 2013.
