It is our last Wednesday market for this season, but we will go out strong.


Valley Gold Honey joins us one more time. And BC Bud’s Garlic is back with their amazing garlic products. Clayburn Comforts Soap and Body Works also rejoins the market for out last day.


Check out the re-run of the Kids Swap Meet and the kids activities zone both sponsored by the Best for Babies Program.

Winter Markets Schedule


Downtown Saturday Markets will continue weekly until Christmas.


Our produce vendors have assured that they will have a supply right up to Christmas and, of course the food processors (bakers, jams & jellies, sauces, etc.) all work very hard for a couple days prior to each market.


So plan to continue using the market as an integral part of your weekly shopping through December 21st.


And watch tour web site for news about our Country Christmas Craft Fairs December 14 and 21.
