Farmers Market to Feature Live Entertainment

Farmers Market to Feature Live Entertainment

 

Live entertainment and market incentives were just a couple of things the Milledgeville Marketplace Farmers’ Market Committee wanted to provide during the 2013 Farmers’ Market season. During each month the committee had planned to have at least one activity for market goers and vendors to enjoy while at the market.

The market opened April 2nd with 10 vendors and more than 400 people visiting the market. Live entertainment was provided by the Blue Grass Strangers to kick things off for the grand opening. Since opening day, the market had the band Analog Reunion preform as the April entertainment.  It is the middle of May so it is now time to bring back more entertainment for the vendors and customers to enjoy.
