The Opening Day for the Wauseon Farmers Market is just around the corner. The Farmers Market will kick off on June 21 from 8:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. in the downtown just off of Fulton Street across the road from the Wauseon Chamber of Commerce. The Farmers Market is sponsored by the Wauseon Downtown Association and will run on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. through October 11.
According to OSU Extension, “The popularity of farmers’ markets and locally grown food is soaring nationally. According to the Farmers’ Market Coalition, the number of farmers’ markets in the United States has increased 40% during the past decade. More than 3 million consumers shop at farmers’ markets, spending more than $1 billion annually.”
To kick off the first Farmers Market of the season, come on out, and enjoy music, food, fun, crafts, friends, and community.
“It’s all about our local community and farmers, so please come out and support our local producers and vendors,” invited Wauseon Public Library Director Amy Murphy. “Wauseon’s Farmers Market is a fantastic way to support our community and to eat healthier at the same time. So look for fresh fruits and vegetables on June 21.”
