Our next event is our " SPRING FLING"  on APRIL 20th.  We will be providing seeds, potting cup and potting soil for all the children to start their very own flower or vegetable plant.  What fun it will be to experience the growing process.  They can care for their plant and watch it mature.  Should they choose a vegetable, they can eat their bounty. We hope that this will be a learning experience of a lifetime. This will be a morning long event so come in at your convenience before 1:00 pm.  For all who attend we will be offering cookies and coffee and a chance to win spring flowers.  Pick up your free raffle ticket that day.  The raffle is for one day only and the drawing  will be held at noon.  Put your phone number on the ticket to be notified if you are not going to be there to claim your flower.

Beginning APRIL 1st  through May 27th we will be accepting donations of food, toys, blankets, cat litter, cleaning supplies, etc. for the OHIO VALLEY HUMANE SOCIETY.  The animals need your help too.  Let's keep the Humane Society able to help the homeless animals who need a meal, dry place to stay and lots of love.  In fact, there is probably a pet out there waiting for you..... Every time you drop off a donation you will receive a free raffle ticket for a monthly chance to win $25.00 market cash to spend with the member, or members,  of your choice. The April drawing will be held on the 27th and the May drawing on May 27th.  You need not be present to win,  just put your phone number on the ticket.

We would like to Thank all of those who helped out with our Food Drive. We, the market, appreciated it and  so did the pantries.  A little help  individually can add up to a lot of help for those in need.  Please remember to help whenever you can as food is always needed. Contact the local pantries in your area.

The flowers will be coming to the market so get those beds ready.  There will be bedding plants and hanging baskets to meet your every need, be it for shade, sun, ground cover or cutting. Flowers are a sure sign of spring. 

Of course, we will have vegetable plants too.  Get a head start on your garden. Nothing like going out to the garden for the freshest food available.  If you don't have garden space or the time to tend to a garden, you can come to the market for fresh-picked home grown veggies and herbs.  There is always a wide variety  from which to choose.

The bakers are still baking and the crafters are still crafting so make the market the highlight of your Saturday morning.  Come early and stay late.

We are open every Saturday year round. Our NEW SUMMER HOURS are 8 am until 1 pm at 922 Front Street (Washington County Fairgrounds)
