The Traer Farmers Market vendors held their first meetingthe end of Marchto plan the activities and events that will be featured at the market this year. First of all the market will open May 6th, at 4:00 - 6:00 pm at the Farmers Savings Bank and Trust parking lot, as it has been for many years. We really appreciate the support from the bank to allow us to use their facility for our weekly market.
Our kick off activity will be free coffee for everyone and free samples at each vendor table. Also you can "sign up" for a free basket of goodies to be given away the following week. Be sure to include your phone number so we can call your when you name is drawn.
I don't know how much garden produce will be available at this first market, as it will depend on the weather. But I know there will be bedding plants of all kinds, including cabbage, peppers, tomatoes, flowers and more. And you can be sure to find a plentiful variety of homemade fresh bakery, homemade noodles and farm fresh eggs.
Be sure to mark your calendar on May 6th for the kick off date for the first Traer Farmers Market for 2009. Let's hope for a sunny day!
