  • Downtown Farmer's Market is an amazing place to meet new people, experience new foods, and simply enjoy a day in a festive atmosphere.  more »
  • Fantastic. Great place to walk around and interact with a wide group if people. From crafts, plants, food and everything in between. Was able to sample a lot of new food and took some home. Had some great stuffed fill pickles. There was beautiful music of all types. Everyone should check it out when ever possible. Truly amazing.
  • Great Farmers Market, but much more selection (vendors, options) late summer than the fall. In the fall they still had good fall produce (squash, etc.) but not the variety I'd seen earlier. Fun time to get local produce, food, and ware's and get breakfast!
