Oakdale’s popular downtown Farmers Market will continue its run this month, offered each Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., wrapping up with a final market night on Sept. 28.
A photo caption in The Leader on Sept. 7 incorrectly stated that the Sept. 7 market was the final one but organizers said it will run all month, having started in May and continuing throughout September. Vendors still have plenty of fresh produce; there are food booths, crafters, artists and more, adding to the festivities each Wednesday night.
On the schedule later this month, a Safety Fair is planned on Sept. 21, with police, fire and emergency responders expected to attend with vehicles and displays to provide information and meet with the community. Radio station KAT Country 103 is there on a weekly basis as well and live musicians have also added to the festive air of the downtown market.
This year, the market moved back to its original location on North Third Avenue and attendees have been very receptive, enjoying the fact that some of the stores along the street also stay open later on Wednesday nights so they can visit shops and take in the Farmers Market as well.
