Calera Main Street is bringing back its farmers market to Calera!
Calera Main Street Farmers Market
The historic downtown revitalization program will host the market in the “Calera Courtyard” located off 17th Avenue behind the downtown shops on Hwy 25.
The market will be held every Friday from 4-7 p.m. beginning Friday, July 31. The market will run for eight weeks and possibly extend into the fall depending on attendance and availability of vendors. If you want it to stick around, make sure you go check them out.
“Our community needs this,” Calera Main Street Executive Director, Jackie Batson said. “There are very few activities that families can get outside and enjoy. Calera Main Street hopes to provide many reasons for our neighbors to come downtown. We realize the summer growing season is almost over, but that is not stopping us! We will have a mix of growers offering fresh fruits and vegetables, handmade soaps and lotions, peanut butter, lemonade, baked goods, folk art, and other handmade items which should provide a fun variety.”
The market will average 12-15 vendors each Friday plus a food truck each week. Anyone interested in becoming a vendor or a sponsor may reach out to the Calera Main Street Facebook page. Market sponsors for 2020 are Central State Bank, Sav Mor Food Outlet, and the City of Calera.
“We hope people will kick off the weekend on Main Street,” Batson said. “We can stroll through the market, grab a bite to eat and check out the local shops downtown. We have opened four new businesses in our first nine months and have at least five more set to open before the end of the year!”
The Calera Main Street Farmers Market will be observing COVID-19 best practices including mask wearing, hand sanitizing, and social distancing.
Please see their Facebook event for a full list of guidelines.
