Here comes the sun… and the fruit…

Here comes the sun! This Thursday, make sure to put on your sunscreen, funky farmers market hat, bring your favorite basket, and come down to Evergreen Park for the Market. We have something for everyone – fruit, veggies, plants, BBQ, ice cream, candy, bread, homemade sodas, jewelry, kids clothes, local authors, knitted goods, handmade soaps, flowers, and more!
