Though winter has been seemingly spring-like, we in Old Town are anxiously awaiting the green buds on trees, and most importantly, our Farmer’s Market! The market has a lot to offer its vendors and attendees, and we are looking forward to the upcoming season.
We are currently accepting applications from farmers providing homegrown food. We are committed to creating a vibrant, eclectic market, and we want you to be involved because a market cannot be successful without a community that supports it.
