The July 4 weekend is here already. Enjoy and be safe! Check out our vendors this morning and you’ll find a lot of your holiday meal needs.

The Jones’s will be grilling and sampling and I hear they will have a little sweet corn with them. The following list contains the names and products of the vendors that expect to set up for the Saturday Market.
