Farmers Market Update

As I’m sure your are aware, we made some significant changes to the Dundee Farmer’s Market this year.  As with any major change, there will be a period of adjustment but we are really quite happy with how the new market is shaping up.

As a reminder, the farmers market is held every Sunday from 10:00am to 3:00pm right downtown in the triangle.

Here are some details:

  • We are averaging about 12 vendors per week.  One week we were up to 18 vendors!
  • Each week there are 200-300 shoppers.
  • More shoppers visit the business side than the bandstand side so be sure to check out both sides when you come!
  • 1:00-2:00 tends to be the busiest time.
  • We are seeing lots of families and people walking to market
  • Many people come for the market and also visit downtown businesses or vice versa.

The biggest challenge for the market so far has been the weather!  Such a cool spring and dry summer meant that the veggies didn’t come in a early as usual.  But they are in now!

Market vendors and shoppers have enjoyed many different special events and activities, including: donut day, pie baking competition, Hike it Baby demonstration, live musicians, and more.  Upcoming events include:

Be sure to stop by any Sunday to see what is going on.  There is always something new!
