THE FARMERS MARKET
FARMERS MARKET CLOSING DAY FESTIVITIES
Join us for the closing day of the Alden Farmers Market! The Market is located at 13119 Broadway (Tractor Supply Plaza). The closing day will feature:
The Apen Family Band and their upbeat, bluegrass music from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.
A Kids and Pets Costume parade at 11 a.m. The first 25 kids will receive goody bags. Ribbons and bragging rights will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in both kids and pets costume categories.
The popular Amish shed, big basket of gift certificates and lotto tickets, and beautiful quilt by Penny Marble Quilt Designs will all be raffled off at approximately 12:45 p.m. If you don't have your tickets yet, be sure to stop out and purchase a chance or two. You have to be in it to win it! Shed raffle tickets are just $2 each or three tickets for $5. Basket raffle tickets and quilt raffle tickets are only $1 each. The Chamber table also has great spices for all your grilling marinades, party dips, and hearty fall soups and stews.
Also, visit our vendors for fresh local produce. Apples are now in season. And stock up your winter supplies of maple syrup, honey, wine, sausage and much more! Homemade fudge, Crystal Beach suckers and waffles are also available. It's Sweetest Day too! Pick up something unique for your special someone.
The Alden Chamber of Commerce will be selling grilled Sahlen's hot dogs, pizza, chips and pop. All proceeds help to fund the Farmers Market.
The day's activities are sponsored by Bene-Care Agency.
We are thankful to the plaza owners and neighbor tenants for all of their support as well as the many returning vendors, one-time vendors, Chamber volunteers, and of course, the customers! The Alden Chamber of Commerce sponsors the Market and Chamber members volunteer to keep it running every Saturday morning from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Do you like meeting and talking with people? Volunteers are always needed and appreciated; come join our Market family!
