Downtown IM to host farmers market Saturday

Charmaine Conroy is a new vendor at the Iron Mountain Farmers and Artisans Summer Market, taking place from 8 a.m. to noon each Saturday through Oct. 13.

IRON MOUNTAIN –Iron Mountain Farmers and Artisans Summer Market will be held Saturday.

The market runs from 8 a.m. to noon through Oct. 13 and is located across from the Dickinson County Library.

The market is managed Nancy Schaub together with the Farmer’s Market Executive committee under the auspices of the Downtown Development Authority. The public is asked to refrain from being in market area before 8 a.m. to give vendors a chance to set up their products safely.

“One of our new vendor’s is Charmaine Conroy,” said Schaub. ” Charmaine is an exotic chicken breeder who has branched out to selling chicken themed merchandise. She brings one of her chickens with her to each market, so stop by and visit the fancy chicken.”

There are plants available for gardeners. Fresh cut greens, rhubarb, early strawberries, zucchini, fresh herbs, eggs, meat, jam, and maple syrup are available. Lots of locally produced crafts, art and baked goods are waiting to be discovered.
