Mechanicsville Farmers Market: Tuesdays 4-6pm
It’s that time of year when all goodness comes again and the Farmers Market is open for business. Before malls, downtowns, and even before brick and mortar storefronts there were public markets. Throughout the world these markets still exist and in Cedar County we are lucky to have a few we call “Farmers Markets”. Like those of old public markets, Farmers Markets serve many functions. First, obviously, they offer a great place to get some tasty food. However, the joys of our markets are more than great food; they also offer the community a reason for gathering. Their festive atmosphere provides a relaxing and entertaining place to shop, meet with friends and get to know your neighbors. In addition, the market offers a profitable way to sell their goods and produce and gives them an opportunity to directly communicate with their customers. Farmers Markets bring life into our public spaces, downtown areas, town squares, and parks. They not only offer produce but casual encounters among community members which are the building blocks to a strong, vibrant community. So let’s stop by a Cedar County Farmer’s Market, get some tasty “greens” and build a community.
