Spring or summer vibes have been in short supply so far this year but that isn't stopping local organizers from the Clinton Farmer's Market who are well underway readying for this summer.
Elizabeth Burns with the Clinton Area Farmers and Artisans Market says if you are thinking of seed starting to get on the square this summer, now is the time to get those started.
The market will start on May 5 and Burnes indicates they are again giving away trees this year. She also notes they working on having things for kids and families to do and are reaching out to local non-profits to join them on Saturday mornings.
For producers interested in being a part of this year's markets, Burnes says they've lowered their rates for producers. She also points, if you have spare produce from your own garden, you can simply bring it by the market and they will sell it for you and give you the funds after the day is done.
