Save the date: Midtown Farmers Market opening day May 3rd!
Spring is here and opening day for the Midtown Farmers Market is right around the corner, so save the date: May 3rd is opening day at Midtown! The Market will return for its 12th season at 2225 E. Lake Street and we have lots of new and exciting activities, entertainment, events and vendors in the works, along with many of the friendly and familiar favorites you’ve grown to love over the years. Despite recent news surrounding the possibility of the purchase and development of the property and home of the Market at 2225 E. Lake, the Market will remain at its current location and will for the foreseeable future.
Some things you’ll want to keep an eye out for this season include new themed market event days like Youth Leadership Day, African American Heritage Day and a Fiesta de Maiz, along with some novel and intriguing offerings from vendors with products like wood-fired pizza, locally sourced nut butters and fresh frozen custard. They’ll be plenty of great activities for everyone as well including 2nd Saturday Children’s Activities, Story Time with the East Lake Library, Midtown Flavors Cooking Demos, Yoga at the Market and Blood Drives with Memorial Blood Centers. Market staff has been hard at work over the winter making sure this season will be one to remember. We’re excited to get the 2014 season underway and to see the many familiar faces that frequent the Market each week, so come pay us a visit this season!
