Farmers Market returns

I've just been reminded that this Saturday marks the start of this year's Farmers Market. According to Cheri Reitmeier, Board President of the Farmers Market, the Market will run from 9 AM to 2 PM every Saturday (rain or shine) from June 16 to September 29 in the Town Square at the corner of DeMers and 3rd Street. A free concert starts at 11 AM each Saturday. Cheri says that there are "lots of new vendors this year."

Great to see this event returning year after year. It is really a wonderful thing for downtown and for our community. I applaud those who work to bring it back each summer.

Agree! Farmers Market and Art Fest are both wonderful things for GF...

eat some food too! Farmers Market always seems to have the best vendors. Am I the only one who is baffled that Famous Dave's always brings their food here by trailer but doesn't have a restaurant in town? Boy, that sure would be nice.

Two bucks a rib?

Agreed...Dave's is tops...but really, two bucks a rib is a bit pricey...

I think so...it's gotta be the closest one to GF.

Why did someone have to go and bring up Famous Dave's?? Now I won't be able to stop thinking about it until I go there - it will have to be tomorrow.

Nothing is as classy as a hefty portion of ribs and bbq chicken served on a garbage can lid. It's fucking great!

Farmer's market study on food size/prices

That's weird. Back home it's expected that things will be cheaper and better at the farmer's market.

We love the farmer's market. Unfortunatly we don't make it as often as I'd like

Farmer's Markets should be better and cheaper than grocery stores. Hopefully, once the GF market hits critical mass in terms of selection, customers and pride in the appearance of vendor stalls, I think this will happen.

Union Square Market in NYC is a big deal. You'll shop for locally produced organic and exotic foods and prepared foods, elbow-to-elbow with celeb chefs and stylish neighbors under canvas umbrellas. But you won't find anything used. That's a flea market and when you mix them, you dilute the appeal of both.
