The Farmers Market in Downtown Homer will begin the first Saturday in June at 8 a.m. and will be open every Saturday through the summer except for the day of Homer's Sunday School Celebration and the Labor Day Holiday Festival.
“Buy from Homers Farmers Market to build a stronger community of friends,” organizer Janice Tennent states.
Items available starting the first Saturday are: Large variety of tomato plants including Heirloom Cherokee Purple, variety of pepper plants, basil, lilies, Flag Iris, Bearded Iris, Blooming Almond, and Catherine's Homemade Brownies and Bread, and Handmade Crocheted and Knitted Items.
“The first few of Saturdays in June, Jaemor Farms is helping Homer's Farmers Market get started since the spring has been so cool,” Tennent said. “We will pick up corn, tomatoes and strawberries. If you are interested in anything else or have any question please let us know.”
Set up for vendors will be around the park. There is no fee. An umbrella or tent is recommended, not required, but may be needful in the hot summer or rain. “Please call or email in your items that you plan to sell so we can advertise for you and the community will know what is available,” Tennent said. “You can bring anything you think will sell. Yard sales are not allowed. Its a fun day setting up, talking to your fellow growers, and meeting new and old friends.”
