Article Image Alt Text
The new Washington Farmers Market was in just its second week of operation on Saturday, but it is already drawing a variety of vendors offering everything from art and merchandise to fresh produce and fl owers. The market is in operation from 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays at the Theater Gardens on the south side of the Washington County Courthouse square. Coordinator Kurt Funke said weather has slowed production of fresh produce, but he is expecting more to start showing up this week, along with baked goods, fl owers from Owens Originals and local artworks and merchandise. There are also activities for kids available, including sidewalk chalk drawing, a bubble station and more. He is also hoping to incorporate live music into the venue on occasion to build the atmosphere of the event. The public is encouraged to come support the farmers market.
