Farmers Market Saturday May 26th

Greetings All

Happy Memorial Day weekend!

The market will be held from 8am-1pm in the municipal lot adjacent to the First United Methodist Church on Park St. There is plenty of parking both on the street and in the lot behind the Purple Rose Theater.

Children’s Tent activity will run from 9:30-12:30 (so sorry about the cancellation of the activity last week – we are ON this week however!) and is themed “Roots, shoots, flowers and stems”. Come see what Miss Jill has in store for the littles Saturday.

The MacDonald Brothers will play some delightful tunes for us from 10:30-12:30 AND we will have a Food Demo exploring the deliciousness of egg salad!

We also expect to see two fundraiser groups: MS and Shimizu group again!

I won’t always know exactly what these amazing vendors will have and sometimes unforeseen circumstances require flexibility and understanding, but this week we expect to see:
