Farmers Market in the Square
We have a spot at the Historic Downtown Farmers Market on the Square where we
can launch our activities. The Market is open every Friday through October 3rd from
2-6pm. The first Friday of each month is the most popular because the merchants
join in adding events starting around 5pm. Please consider joining us if you want to sell your books (even for a couple of hours) and let Horton know.
