HANCOCK - Town Manager David Smith long has been attracted to the idea of a farmers market.
Now, there's going to be one.
A kickoff farmers market will be held Saturday, May 31, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Joseph Hancock Park on Main Street. From then on, into the fall, the farmers market will be held the second and fourth Saturday of each month, Smith said.
"This was one of the original ideas for that park," Smith said. "Wide sidewalks were installed at the park for vendors, who can set up there or in the grass."
All items must be homegrown or produced by the person who sets up the wares. No flea market items will be allowed.
