Farmer’s Market opens Friday in Arena parking lot

The Lake Country Farmer’s Market is returning Friday, June 1.

The Lake Country Farmer’s Market is returning Friday, June 1.

It will have hours of operation from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will be held in the Arena parking lot on Bottom Wood Lake Road.

The Farmer’s Market will call the Arena home until the paving at Swalwell Park is complete and the market can move back to its traditional location.

More than 20 vendors are expected for the first market of the season. More vendors are expected to arrive throughout the summer as the produce comes in from the local fields.

Community support is vital to the Farmer’s Market and the market’s board of management would like to show their appreciation to those who have attended in past years.  A customer appreciation day has been planned for Aug. 11 when there will be something special for all ages.

“We want people to know that we appreciate them and will be doing something to show that,” says Robin Burke, who is organizing the market this year.

“That Day is going to be called Early Harvest.”
