Farmers’ Market opens May 24

The Farmers’ Market ran outdoors in the summer of 2020 under COVID-19 protocols.

Note: An earlier version of this article referenced a May 3 opening date. The Market will not open on May 3, and instead will open May 24.

The Sorauren Farmers’ Market is planning to open on Victoria Day, Monday, May 24, outdoors on the park’s Town Square. The Market’s normal outdoor schedule is 3 – 7 pm every Monday.

In normal years the Market moves from its winter home indoors at the Sorauren Fieldhouse to its outdoor home in the park in late May. Pandemic conditions prevented the winter market from opening this past season, replaced by the Farm Box program which has now wrapped up.
