Galatia Now Has Farmers Market
Date(s) & Time(s)::

Location: Galatia Public Library, 217 S. Cross Main Street, Galatia, IL
Friends of the Galatia Public Library have come up with a way to help raise funds for their projects and upcoming programs at the Galatia Library and help their community, too. The newly established Friends Farmers Market started on June 9th. It is held each Saturday morning, weather permitting, from 9 a.m. until noon at the Galatia Public Library.Return to event list.
Vendors are being sought to make the Market even bigger and better. The Illinois laws regarding Farmers Markets have changed as of January 2012, so those applying to participate in the Market need to be sure and read over those new laws. It cost just $5 to set up in a 10x10 space each Saturday. Proceeds go to the non-profit Friends of the Galatia Public Library and help them help the library. For more information, or to receive a Vendor’s Application Form, e-mail your request to Friends or call Therese. You can also find Friends of the Galatia Public Library on facebook (we’d appreciate it if you would check out our fb page and “Like” us!).
Non-profit groups who would be interested in setting up a “Bake Sale” and selling cold, canned sodas and bottled water during Market should also contact the Friends group. New regulations allow cookies, cakes, and fruit pies that are prepared in a non-inspected kitchen be sold or distributed on an "occasional basis". To uphold this regulation, and to make it fair and ensure a group raises adequate funds during their time at the Market to support their cause, only one group (such as a 4-H club, Galatia school class, youth group, Scout troop, etc.) will be allowed to serve as the official “Market Concessions” each week. Groups, once approved by the Market Manager, will be placed on the “Concession Schedule” and their days to set-up at Market will rotate. Groups will not be charged a vendor’s fee.
