Who We Are...
The Fuzzy Farmers are a group of local sheep, goat, alpaca, and rabbit farmers, plus a few fiber artists, who sell their handcrafted products at the Fuzzy Farmers Market in Leonardtown. There, you'll find their handmade and homegrown products for sale, including shawls, scarves, hats and mitts, as well as rugs, runners, bags and baskets. There’s fun and funky fiber art along with felted figurines of farm animals and fairies.
Indulge yourself with handmade goat’s milk soap and unique jewelry. Then fill your home with locally made blankets and baskets, kitchen towels and textiles. For the DIYer, we have handspun yarn and dyed fiber ready to knit, crochet, spin, and felt.
If you're looking for unique, high quality items to give or to keep, the Fuzzy Farmers Market is the only place to shop.
