While the attendance was lower this time, the energy was still strong, at the Fifth Saturday Farmers Market. When asked why he thought attendance was lower, Dale Stone, President of the Rotary Club, stated “There were a lot of other things going on this weekend. There was graduation and other festivals around the county. But, we plan on the next being much larger.”
There were almost a dozen vendors at the Farmers Market, and nearly a couple of hundred people attended. There was music in the pavilion, but this market was more focused on the produce rather than the entertainment. With temperatures nearing triple digits, the heat kept many residents indoors. The next festival will take place in October, around Halloween.
