Area farmers will gather for the fifth official farmers market Saturday at the corner of Center and Main streets. The event will then run every Saturday through October, according to MaryClare Maslyn, assistant city manager for Spanish Fork.
Maslyn was in charge of organizing the market and inviting local farmers who are members of the Utah Farm Bureau Federation."We have between 12 to 17 (farmers) each Saturday," said Maslyn. "They come from all over. We have some from Mona and Heber. Most of them are within an hour's drive from Spanish Fork."
Customers can expect to find blackberries, raspberries, tomatoes and melons and a variety of other produce, depending on the week. "The variety is quite good," said Maslyn.
The farmers market is held under the shade trees at the city park, with shoppers buying out of trucks lined up along the sidewalk.
It begins each Saturday at 9 a.m. and is open until dark.
The city also allows people to set up booths to sell crafts at no charge, but it separates that activity from the farmers.
