Farmers' Market opens with a new archway

Posted: Friday, June 6, 2014

New to the Downtown Farmers’ Market this year is the new archway welcoming visitors and vendors to the Farmers’ Market festivities. The archway was installed at this location on Thursday, May 29.

The archway was designed and built by Jack Amick, owner of Amick Welding and prepared, powder coated and painted by Huntington Sheet Metal. The archway was then installed by Doctor Construction. According to Mayor Brooks Fetters, this was a true collaboration of local businesses pulling together to design, build, prepare and install this magnificent archway for the Downtown Farmers’ Market.

The Downtown Farmers’ Market is held in the city parking lot on the corner of Warren and Market Streets. The market will continue in this location and will be open on Wednesdays, from 4 to 7 p.m., from June 4 through October 15.

The market promises to have plenty of produce, baked goods, salsa, cupcakes, cookies, jewelry, honey, maple syrup, plants and much more. Also planned for the 2014 season will be demonstrations and entertainment.
