For those that work downtown, the weekly Wednesday Downtown Farmers Market is something that offers a fun mid-week excuse to get out of the office and go enjoy the spring and summer weather. Traditionally held in Moore Square, this year marks the first year of the new location, City Plaza.
Kicking off this season’s market with everything from local produce, barbecue, baked goods, and music are the opening festivities this Wednesday, April 28, from 10:00- 2:00.
10 am: Market Opens
10:30-11:15: Bluegrass Music by Old Habits

While some note that they will miss the shade and scenery that Moore Square offers, the new locale of City Plaza offers more convenience to those that can only slip out for a quick minute, while also reaffirming the spot as a new downtown community gathering place. The market will run every Wednesday from April 28 - October 27. Get ready to get your local shopping and eating on!
