Set your alarm for Saturday morning!

Set your alarm for Saturday morning! The Farmer's Market at the Wallace Depot opens May 16 at 8 a.m.! You know how quickly the asparagus and herbs went last year- so if you snooze- you may lose out! The hours for the market will be from 8-12 this year, and many of the popular vendors from last year are back- along with some new ones. The Long Leaf Arts & Crafts Guild gallery will be open, and the trains will be running in the train room.

Some of the merchants downtown are planning sales- so be sure and check them out while you are downtown- What I know is that The Verandah, Farriors, Fancy Farmer, Peek-a-Bootique, The Polka Dot Zebra have sales going on....Lillies & The Mustard Seed were thinking Sidewalk was Evan's Jewelers....
See you at the Depot!
