UNION- The Union Farmers Market is set to open its 2019 season “Homegrown & Handmade” on Friday, May 10. The market, which takes place on the Common across from the Post Office, a half mile from Hwy 17, will be held Fridays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. The market is a rain or shine event that continues through the October 4.
Each week the Union Farmers Market has a special theme or event. Enjoy live music, meet special guests, join in family fun activities.
From sea shanties to fiddle tunes, oldies to bluegrass, and more. The Union Farmers Market is pleased to start off the season with the music of The Pinwheel Brothers, and on May 17 the market will welcome The Rusty Hinges.
Union Framers Market is whole family fun. With this season’s “Passports to Healthy Living” events the market wants to help kids eat nutritious foods and get to know where their food comes from. Kids can sign up for their “passport” at the Market Information Booth. Each week when they come to the market, they will get a stamp for their passport. After five stamps they will receive Market Bucks to spend on products like fruits and veggies of their choice! Celebrate Mother Earth & Mom Too on May 10, decorate and plant a terracotta pot. On May 17 it is Chicken and Duck Day with the market’s poultry petting zoo!
The Union Farmers Market invites everyone to enjoy locally grown, farm fresh produce along with baked goods, meats, honey and plants and other items.
