The annual Clinton Area Farmers and Artisans Market will kick off their 2017 season this weekend on the downtown Clinton Square.
Elizabeth Burns indicates this year they hope to get more vendors involved to provide more availability and variety to the community. She says it is very easy to become a vendor for their market.
Vendors are local and Burns explains they hope to continue to keep their vendors local. She explains if you're a smaller operation and you are trying to test the Farmers Market waters, Clinton might be a good place to start.
According to Burns, this year they hope some musicians might be willing to come to the square and provide some entertainment. She feels it's a great venue for local artists to come and be a part of.
The Farmers Market opens this Saturday morning at 8 am and will be on the Downtown Clinton Square each morning from 8 am to noon until October.
Burns reminds vendors who want to be a part of the Market during Apple and Pork weekend, they will need to be a part of one weekend before the big September market.
