Celebrating 47 years, every Saturday morning from May through October, the Main Street Market has something for everyone. Rain or shine, fresh garden and produce is available as well as bakery goods. In addition, your favorite local businesses set up shop under their awnings with baubles, artwork, garden ornaments, candles, and more! Come to the Market to meet friends, chat, browse, have breakfast or lunch, and shop.
