Once a month, May through September, you don't want to miss the markets' Celebration Saturdays. These themed days highlight market vendors and their goods, along with many activities such as childrens' craft tables, acoustic music, balloon animals, face painting, food sampling, cooking demonstrations, plant and farm education, as well as local businesses that may wish to host a booth to spotlight their local products or services.
