Quincy Certified Farmers’ Market returns

Feather Publishing
6/12/2014

This Thursday kicks off the start of the Quincy Certified Farmers’ Market.

“The lawns at Church and Main streets in downtown Quincy come to life with vendors selling the freshest locally grown fruit and vegetables,” says market manager Hannah Hepner. “There are also crafters offering everything from heavenly body care products to handspun yarn and handsome birdhouses. There’s the option to kick back and get a massage or throw out a picnic blanket, order dinner and listen to the live entertainment.”


The first market will feature tunes from the Fish Tacos. The “regulars” — Kenny Davis, Lance Barker, Ken Cawley, Barney Harchis and Adrienne Johnson — play on Monday nights at Pangaea Café and Pub along with anyone who wants to join in. They’ll be offering up bluegrass, Celtic, folk, swing, country and everything in between. Attendees can also catch Todd Reasor at 6 p.m. providing “intermission” entertainment.

This year Hepner is excited to announce that the market offers dollar-for-dollar SNAP and WIC benefit matching, more shady spots to relax and chairs for senior citizens.

“We also have excellent prizes for our twice-nightly giveaway,” says Hepner. “Entering the giveaway is as easy as making a purchase from any of the vendors and asking for a ticket.”

The farmers’ market takes place each Thursday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. June 12 – Aug. 28. A full schedule of entertainment throughout the summer is in place. A calendar of events can be found at QuincyFarmersMarket.org. For more information, call 487-4386.
