The Monticello Farmer's Market is off and running, and I would just like to remind everyone that, aside from the normal markets on Saturday mornings at 1210 N 6th St; beginning on May 29th the market will also be held on Tuesday evenings from 4 to 7 P.M. at Constitution Plaza next to the courthouse in downtown Monticello.
I would like to use this opportunity to remind everyone that the Monticello Farmer's Market will be making its debut Saturday, May 19th. The Saturday market will run from May until October 13th from 9am to 1pm at 1210 N 6th Street in Monticello in the parking lot of Rugie's Dugout. There will also be a Tuesday evening market, which will debut on May 29th, and will run from 4pm to 7pm through August 7th.
