Fresh fruits and vegetables will return to the Quincy Certified Farmers Market site in front of the school district office on Main Street on Thursday, June 20.
In addition to fresh local produce, the market will offer an expanded prepared food section as well as artisan, crafter and educational booths. Live music will accompany each weekly market.
The popular downtown market will run every Thursday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., culminating Sept. 19.
Market manager Hannah Hepner said there are two new things happening this year: stickers will be available for as little as a $5 donation, which will go to support the event, and a test booth for folks interested in becoming market vendors will also be available. The market will provide the booth space, table and canopy for potential vendors to promote their products.
This introductory booth will allow potential vendors the chance to experience the market’s selling environment before having to make the commitment to sell at each of the 14 markets.
Hepner said the farmers market depends on sponsorships for its continued success. There are several levels of sponsorship offered to community businesses and supporters. Each comes with promotional benefits and perks.
