  • Vendors are asked to bring only “locally-grown, locally-made, or locally-crafted” 
  • On a regular basis, visitors will find local produce, jellies, crafts and seasonal items like apples or corn
  • As an added highlight, some Saturdays include music, demonstrations, crafts, art or a historian on site
