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.
Spring - or summer, depending on the day - has finally arrived in Indiana. As the days warm, people are more likely to grill out.

Follow these steps for a safe and enjoyable grilling season.
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.

One great tool that helps with this process is the website DriftWatch, which can be accessed at: https://in.driftwatch.org/ The DriftWatch web

A few examples of these excellent resources can be found on the World Wide Web.
