The weather forecast for market time tomorrow is a little changeable. Bring your umbrella, just in case. But we also have lots of canopies you can duck under if the raindrops do fall. Otherwise, it sounds like a warm, early fall day. Really, it isn’t like you will have to be out mowing lawn or weeding your garden… come on down to the market for awhile!
Below is the list of vendors who we know will be at the Farmers Market this week. Will we see YOU there?
