Joe Obbie Farmer’s Market opens this Saturday

farm market 2

Don’t believe the calendar (or this week’s unseasonably cool weather). Summer has officially begun.

I know this, because Webster’s Joe Obbie Farmer’s Market opens for the season at 8:30 a.m this Saturday June 9 at Webster Towne Center (Target/Kohl’s Plaza) on Holt Road.

If you’ve never been to this market you should start making it a regular Saturday morning stop. Varying with the season, you’ll find baked goods, pies, meats, poultry, goat cheese and goat cheese products, flavored nuts, herbs, spice blends, honey, maple syrup, cider, soap and body care products, plants and cut flowers, jewelry, crafts and of course a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.

Special events and entertainment are scheduled every week; this weekend, for their grand opening celebration, Walt the Balloon Man will be on hand for the kids, and for the adults,  a representative from the Northeast Quadrant Advanced Life Support Service will be on site offering blood pressure checks.

The market runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. every Saturday through October 27, rain or shine. Check out the Joe Obbie Farmer’s Market website and Facebook page for details.

See you Saturday!
