From locally made preserves, to fresh baked goods, to luscious green plants and produce, The Forks Farmers’ Market has a little bit of everything for its grand opening this Sunday. On June 7, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Forks Farmer’s Market will be celebrating their season opening with over 30 vendors, entertainment and free giveaways.
“We are thrilled to have so many great local producers, crafters and artisans and can’t wait to showcase them at The Forks Farmers’ Market,” says Melissa Morrow, Events Manager at The Forks. “It’s our second season of The Forks Farmers’ Market and we are looking forward to building on the success of last year with even more vendors and services.”
During the grand opening, there will be entertainment by Buskers including Drum Café, Double Trouble, and the Teakle Circus Performance. There is also free face painting and cookies for kids located at the customer service tent. The first 75 customers will also receive a free starter plant or flowers to take home for their garden.
Conveniently located in the Plaza Parking lot, The Forks Farmers’ Market offers an ever-changing lineup of local vendors each Sunday.
“From handmade goods to locally grown plants and produce, it is a fantastic showcase of what’s available within our community,” says Morrow. “And if your shopping bags get too full, there is a free pedicab service that will take you from the market to your car.”
The Forks Farmers’ Market runs every Sunday from June 7 through September. There is ample free parking and no admission fee. For a full list of vendors participating each week, please visit www.theforks.com/farmersmarket.
