Downtown Farmers Market returns to Public Square for its second season!
Each Friday, 11am-2pm, look forward to delicious prepared foods for lunch as well as fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, meat, cheese, spices, salsas, chocolate and baked goods to take home.
Come down on your lunch hour and visit one of the food trucks (Dim and Den Sum and StrEat Mobile Bistro) or stop by Judy's Oasis for a Middle Eastern meal including Falafel sandwiches & meat pies, or Frickaccio's for pizza bagels and pepperoni rolls. You'll also find sweets from No Whey Chocolates and Oh Baby Cakes - c'mon, it's Friday, treat yourself!
