Each Thursday from May to October we offer a market bursting with great vendors, music, educational opportunities, kids’ activities, and more. The market is responsibly managed with an eye to offering innovative programs and initiatives for our community. Our board is fun and forward-thinking, and we enjoy the work we do.
