If you grow produce in your back yard as a hobby or do it hoping to find some extra income, the Clinton Area Farmers and Artisans Market is hoping you'll consider setting up on the Clinton square on Saturday mornings with them.
Elizabeth Burns indicates they have implemented a small change for vendors the rest of the summer. She explains they have changed their fees to a flat fee for the rest of the year from their weekly fees of the past.
Burns notes, there's also an option for someone who does not want to set up at the market, they will take that extra produce and sell it for you. She adds they will also sell the produce for charity.
In an effort to bring more variety to the farmers market on a weekly basis, Burns explains they are seeking local entertainers to come to the square. She notes they've had a number of local residents express interest in performing on the Mr. Lincoln Square stage from 8 am to noon on Saturday mornings.
Burns expects the interest in the farmers market to grow as the season moves along. She says they are getting a good response from vendors and the community each week. To get more information about the Farmers Market, visit them on the Mr. Lincoln Square on Saturday mornings from 8 am to noon, or contact Burns at 217-722-2496.
