Don't forget that on Tuesday's the Farmers Market also runs from 3pm to 6pm at the same location! We need more promotion of this weekday farmers market. It's great for commuters to pick up some locally grown produce on the way home to feed the family. Looking forward to seeing the new farmers market building being constructed at the Arts Center in the future!
