Plan to be at the Market sometime between 2:30 and 5:30 pm on Wednesday to get fresh, local produce and baked goods from our friendly vendors. We really enjoy serving you when the weather is pleasant.
A Heads Up for the Saturday Market: Don’t eat breakfast that day because between 8:30 am and 10 am the Market will have its August Festival – “Tooty Fruity Pancakes”! The Hardware Store will be flipping pancakes and our Janean Bowen and Susan Turnbull will serve homemade fruit toppings on pancakes. Free will offering to go to the Salvation Army Food Pantry.
