The Algonquin Farmers' Market will getting underway Thursday includes a few changes from last year. For one, there's a new afternoon time for 2010.
The weekly market this year will be every Thursday through September from 1pm to 7pm in the municipal parking lot on South Harrison Street, one block east of Route 31. As last year, the Thursday timing avoids conflict with all the weekend farmers' markets around.
The afternoon timing is so that beginning in July, music-lovers can stroll over to Riverfront Park after the Farmers Market closes for the day to enjoy free village-sponsored concerts starting at 7:30pm each Thursday evening from July 15—August 19.
The market will offer fresh fruits, vegetables, baked goods, various organic items, seasonal plants and flowers and is sponsored by the Downtown Algonquin Partnership (DAP) merchants’ association to promote Algonquin’s Old Town District and downtown businesses.
