farmers’ market

Artist, Farm, and Food Vendors Needed for 2018

If you are a past vendor, thinking of becoming a vendor, or know of anyone who might enjoy being one please sign up and fill out an application.  The sooner we can get applications in the easier it will be to get the market organized for this summer.  Even though we had a long winter and a short spring we are only a month away from our first market of the 2018 season!

Thanks to everyone who has turned in their applications for this year and we’re looking forward to a great year in 2018!
