We will have live music this week (from ~8-10 on Saturday) from Paula Miller. If you enjoy the music, please continue showing your support for the musicians with a tip (or some produce), as Mid-Town Farmers’ Market is not the most lucrative gig. 🙂 Check out our full music lineup for the first half of the season here: http://www.mtfarmersmarket.
The Wednesday market will continue next week, running 8am to 1pm. Please note that during the Wednesday market hours, our vendors may arrive or depart any time, depending on availability of their product.
You can receive an update similar to this one each week on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/

If you know anyone who receives food benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly the Food Stamp Program), please let them know that they can now use EBT to purchase fresh healthy food at Mid-Town Farmers’ Market.
We need volunteers to help at the market tent this summer. If you are interested in helping, please contact our volunteer coordinator Betty Crouther (firstname.lastname@example.org).
