Like a tomato on the vine or a peach on the branch, Empire’s Farmers Market is growing over the summer.
Dozens of locals and tourists alike stopped through Theobold Park on Saturday to check out the array of vendors selling homemade baked goods, honey, dried fruit, jams, jellies, and meat. Even Charlie’s Place brought dogs available for adoption.
Last year, the town hosted only four farmers markets throughout the summer. This year, there are nine scheduled, with Saturday’s being the second one of the season, organizer Weslie Phillips said. The final market set for Sept. 14 will be combined with the town’s annual fall festival, complete with a chili cook-off and historical re-enactors.
