Moving forward on a Saturday Market

Cross-posted from the Vermillion Area Farmers Market site.

We’ve been looking into the possibility of the Saturday morning farmers market in downtown Vermillion after many customer requests.  At our vendor meeting last night, we felt we had enough interest to move forward with the process.

The first step is to work with the city for the use of the public plaza on the corner of Main and Market Streets.  We’ll also be checking on our liability insurance coverage for that location, and our ability to use our EBT/debit machine (the USDA FNS lists a physical market location on our SNAP certificate–we have to be sure we can add another location).

Tentative dates and times for a downtown market: 9am-noon Saturdays from June 5-Sept. 25.

We’re hoping to pay another visit to the City Council at their May 3 meeting to seek approval for use of the public plaza  for those dates and times.
