istock_000017731039medium

You may have heard the news already but we are excited to announce that we will be moving the market to a new central location on the Town Hall lawn. We think this will be a good move to make the market more accessible by foot and remind people to stop by the market as they drive by. We’re busy planning for a great 2017 season and we can’t wait to share our exciting list of vendors with you!

If you are interested in being a vendor at the market this year, please fill out and submit our 2017 vendor application form.

We’ll be in touch soon with more updates! We’ll see you in June!
