It's coming ... Opening Day of the Farmers Market!
The days are getting just a little longer, and if you listen closely, you can hear the chirps of a few robins. The snow is gone ... and then it's back ... and then it's gone again. What does it all mean? Spring is coming, and with it the 27th installment of the Farmington Farmers & Artisans Market! The ball got rolling February 3 when the Farmington City Council happily approved the dates of this year's market schedule: from the May 16 opener to the Haunted Market finale on October 31 (perfect timing). There's still a lot of work to do. Most of the regular farmers and vendors will be back, with a few new faces. Groups are signing up to handle the Little Sprouts tent, and the musicians are checking their calendars for open dates. The POP! crew is planning new challenges for the POPsters, and chefs are being sought out for cooking demos. The events calendar is filling up fast with such market favorites as the Elks Corn Roast, Strawberry Shortcake Day, Italian-American Day and Polish-American Day. All we need is you, our shoppers. See you at the Market on May 16th!
