“We are extremely excited about this market season, as we start a few new things at the market. As of May 23rd we will be accepting EBT/SNAP. Come to the Market booth to find out how it works. We are also going to have a great line up a special events every 2nd Saturday and a Kids Day every 4th Saturday. Our special events will be a Health, Nutrition, and Sustainable Living Day, a Cooking Demonstration Day, a Canning and Food Preservation Day, a Seed Swap Day and an Apple Festival. For our Kids’ Days, kids will be able to participate in a free activity and enjoy a market wide scavenger hunt. While we are very excited about these new things, we are most excited to have all of our vendors and community back together for another great season,” says new market manager Stacey Adam.
