Central Park offers amazing ambiance, where the market has been held in years past. It is shaded, centrally located, offers plenty of room for vendors, a picturesque gazebo and a quaint Victorian ambiance. Located less than a block away from the historic shopping district, the Farmers Market is a great place to try local and regional produce, eggs, meats, and even artisanal items such as soaps!
