“In my way of thinking, this is the best growers market and local craft scene in town! From early spring to late fall, on Saturday mornings from 7am until noon, people show up very early to set up their tents and bring out their beautiful just picked fruits/veggies and their hand made wares. There is always music as well as children and dogs! Oh and don't miss a breakfast burrito from Java Joe's!”
