HURRICANE – The Hurricane Farmer’s Market is looking for local craftsmen and growers to participate in the Market each Saturday.
Event organizer Sandra Adams said that until now, the City Council had a narrow set of guidelines for those selling at the Market.
“Last week, I went before the Council again and made my case for expanding who/what could be sold,” Adams said. “They broadened the scope to include: anything made, anything grown, in the Hurricane Valley.”
According to Adams, that includes Apple Valley to Hurricane to Leeds. Growers do not need an individual permit.
An employee with the city of Hurricane, contacted to confirm those changes, directed St. George News back to Adams.
Adams said the only exclusion is food vendors who sell prepared foods. They will not be allowed this year. “I’m hoping to get them out there next year,” she said.
The Market is held from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays from now until Oct. 1, at the corner of 100 West and State Street (same spot where Peach Days is held).
“We are on the front lawn, along State Street. It’s shady there, with metal picnic tables. On the other side of the park there’s a splash pad for kids. It’s a nice place to spend an hour,” Adams said.
