The variety of the vendors has increased over the last few weeks, as we’ve added both new vendors and more of a variety of wares. The market has also seen many new vendors become Charter vendors, who plan to stay the entire market season! These vendors are: Bison Bluff Farms, DJ Brumleve Family Farm, Dr. Grammy’s Garden, Jen’s Joe, Nature Via, River to River Farm, Super Fat Soap Co., and Thunder 5 Ranch.
The market also hosts children activities in its Kids Center—Professor Play, a celebrated local balloon artist has been at every market, and Malone’s Early Learning Center along with Sylvan Learning Center have provided fun and educational activities for children.
Anderson Overhead Door is sponsoring some great musical artists this week on the big stage: Jordan McCoy (American Juniors, Dream), as well as the well-known local rockabilly/ honkey tonk band, The Swamp Tigers from 5:30-7 p.m. Market-goers are encouraged to bring a chair or blanket and for the grass and stay for the show!
Along with our great musical guests, the market will host a drawing for some fun prizes at 6:30. We’ll also have Smokin’ Shack on the premises for prepared barbecue sandwiches, brats and hot dogs, along with Jen’s Joe, providing iced and hot coffee drinks. And don’t forget our many baked goods vendors with dessert already prepared: pies, cinnamon rolls, cupcakes and so much more.
