Vendors represent Franklin and adjoining counties.

The Farmers’ Market enters its first full season in the recently renovated 1850’s building on Main St., across from St. Francis Borgia Church. The new market structure (photo attached), a community effort involving public and private components, will have many uses for downtown functions, including serving as host for the Annual Art Fair and Winefest the third weekend in May and the Fall Festival in September.
