That’s right! This Thursday is CHICKEN DAY at the Market! Come down and interact with some great, lovable chickens, check out some pretty little chicks, and learn more about how to take care of chickens and other poultry!  As always, dogs are welcome at the park – but please keep them on a very close leash around the chickens tomorrow!!

Please note: The main parking lot at Evergreen will be open for the market (as well as on weekends) — the construction and new striping / sealing should be done by the end of June.
