Farmers Market Saturday September 22nd

GREETINGS ALL!

And just like that it is Autumn! Happiest Equinox my friends – this is most certainly a time to celebrate transition. Summer’s bounty is still bustling at the market and you can begin to look more for storage crops, dark leafy greens and roots!

The market is 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 this week is: all about bulbs: come and learn about different flowers that get planted now and take your very own bulb to plant at home!

Our Musical Guest is Dorkestra! Come and sip a cup ‘o joe and listen.
