If variety is the spice of life, then the Farmer’s Market had to be deemed a success, because there were both variety and spice being sold Thursday night. There were lotions and potions along with homemade breads and biscotti. And of course, there were the first-of-the-season, picked-fresh-from-the-garden vegetables, all for sale.

Hundreds milled through the kaleidoscope of tents and produce, but the one fruit for which people were willing to stand in line, in the hot afternoon sun waiting to buy, were the Flathead cherries brought in fresh from Montana. Kathy Walsh patiently waited her turn.

There were over twenty different vendors plying their wares at the second of the season's weekly outdoor market. Live music entertained the busy shoppers. And Rebekah McCartney was there trying to earn money to go away to school.

The Farmer’s Market is held every Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at the Whitney Commons, found between the library and the Senior Center. For more information call Stacie Coe at 672-8881.
