The summer market takes place at the scenic river walk park along the Walloomsac River on Depot Street, Saturdays from 10 AM – 1 PM, May through October. Saturday morning markets are a great way to gather with friends and neighbors and shop for tantalizingly fresh food. Stroll along the river walk, chat with the vendors about their wares, take in the colors and aromas of just-picked vegetables and fresh baked goodies, and enjoy the great sounds of local musicians. Sign up for our weekly newsletter to find out about all our special events as well as what goods will be offered each week by our vendors.

We accept EBT and Debit cards!
