Mid-Town Farmers’ Market Saturday Preview (for May 17, 2014)


Mid-Town Farmers’ Market fans and customers,

The market continues this Saturday, May 17 (7-11 am), and below are the expected vendor highlights:

We will have live music this week (from ~8-10 on Saturday) from Seed Tick Road. If you enjoy the music, please consider showing your support for the musicians, who are not getting paid for these gigs, with a tip (or some produce).

The Wednesday market will begin this week, running every week 8am to 1pm.  Please note that during the Wednesday market hours, our vendors may arrive or depart any time during those hours, depending on availability of their product.

You can receive an update similar to this one each week on our Facebook page (, along with additional content such as photos and videos from our vendors and from the market itself. We would love for you to take photos at the market, or photos of yourself eating food from the market, and post them on our Facebook page! Or, just make a quick comment on our page about your experience with the market.
