Nowthen organizing its first farmers market
A farmers market is being organized in Nowthen, with plans to open in June.
“People have wanted this in Nowthen for a long time,” said Dennis Blake, one of the organizers.
The first informational meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 31 at Nowthen City Hall, 19800 Nowthen Blvd.
The farmers market is tentatively scheduled to begin the second week in June, and will likely be held on Saturday mornings.
Cost to participate is $100 for the season, $30 for four times or $10 per week.
Blake, who grows perennials in Nowthen, will be one of the vendors. He also plans to grow vegetables for the market.
