The Wednesday Market sits on the original site of the first city-organized farmers market which opened July 8th 1924 on 8th St at Main, between Railroad and Main! Back then the market was open all day..we are open just 4 hrs, 3pm-7pm, every Wednesday, June through September.
We have 15 vendors this week selling fresh produce (now including peaches, cherries, berries, zucchini, cucumbers, even the first tomatoes..and more), meats, wine, chocolates, dog treats, hummus and pita, flowers…ice cream too! Yup it might be rainy, but a warm rain never hurt anyone..and thank goodness it won’t be as hot as last Wednesday:) Live music by Andrew Grade from 3.30-6.30pm and Nebbiolo’s Wine Bar (next door) has live music too..running later!
At the main Saturday Market (July 26th, 2051, Kaen Rd, off Beavercreek Rd, 9am-2pm) we have over 50 vendors this week, including live chickens and the POP Club kids get to learn all about pollinators from the Master Gardeners. The POP Club kids (ages 5-12yrs) get $2 every time they come to a market to buy fresh produce! Plus we have the $5 SNAP match at both markets and this Saturday (again) we’ll be having a free drawing for Ball canning equipment and other cool stuff they are now making…last week’s winners were Dianna Kirby and Desi Pritchard, congrats ladies!
