Hillsboro Farmers' Market to start May 2

Staff writer

Spring might be a bit slow coming to Marion County, but the Hillsboro Farmers’ Market crew is ready to get started May 2 at the Scheffler House Museum grounds.

“We’ll run from 5 to 7 p.m. every Thursday from May through October,” organizer Joni Calam said. “It’s early, but we’ll have plants for sale, eggs, baked goods, and lots of other items. We already have most of the meals scheduled, but there is room for a few more throughout the season.”

Meal vendors are welcome to call Calam to reserve a night for fundraising. They are expected to give a donation to the organization for the opportunity. Booth vendors will not be charged a fee this year however, a change from last year.

“We don’t want anyone to stay away because of cost,” Calam said. “The more vendors we have, the bigger crowds we attract, and everyone is happy.”

Dawn Suderman joins Calam this year in market coordination and both are willing to field questions from meal vendors and booth participants.
