>What is a Farmers’ Market?
A Farmer’s Market is a market that takes place each week on a certain day. Local farmers and other craftspeople come, set up tables and sell what they have grown or made. You can find everything from fresh vegetables, to baking, to plants, to handmade wooden chests, to meats, to knitted items, to…everything! Sometimes, local bands and musicians will play music and entertain market goers. It’s wonderful–and free!
