Farmers’ Market returns for summer


News Journal



WILMINGTON — The Clinton County Farmers’ Market returns for its summer season Saturday, June 3 in downtown Wilmington on Mulberry Street between Main and Locust Street.

The market will meet rain or shine every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to noon through October, depending on the growing season.

Kaity Stuckert and Sally Buchanan are this year’s new co-managers and are proud to be involved in this community effort to bring fresh, local products that are both high quality and affordable for all community members from local vendors — all products sold at the market are locally home-grown or homemade within Clinton County or an adjacent county.

This year there are 16 vendors committed to the summer market. Many returning vendors as well as new vendors will be present during the season.

The 2017 Summer Market will offer seasonal produce, meats (chicken, beef, lamb and pork), farm fresh eggs, homemade baked goods, home-crafted body products, herbs, and artisan crafts.

Throughout the summer season, the Farmers’ Market will host an events schedule that is free and fun for the whole family.

Returning is the “Farmers Market Kids Corner” with activities for the kids visiting the market. Cooking and nutritional demonstrations, health and wellness events, as well as special guests from the community are being scheduled. Watch for announcements regarding our events schedule.

For the convenience of shoppers, the market will continue to accept credit and debit cards for transactions with participating vendors. The market will also continue to accept EBT (food stamp) benefits for eligible food items.
