The first Downtown Farmers Market at Ancestor Square for 2017 will be held May 13 from 8 a.m. to noon in the courtyard and parking lot at Ancestor Square, located at St. George Boulevard and Main Street in downtown St. George. The market will continue every Saturday until Oct. 28, 2017. Parking is located in the adjacent parking lot at Ancestor Square. The event is free and open to the public.
The Downtown Farmers Market at Ancestor Square is a nonprofit community project to promote the downtown area as well as promoting organic gardening and homemade crafts and goods. The market features vendors from all over Washington and Iron Counties selling goods such as organic fruits and vegetables, live plants, cut flowers, herbs, baked goods, jams and preserves, candy, candles, soaps and lotions, jewelry, photography, pottery, sculpture, oil paintings, woodwork, and more — anything and everything homegrown, homemade and/or locally produced.
The market accepts the Horizon card and participates in the Double Up Bucks program. The Farmers Market Information Booth will give EBT participants the information to get up to $10 in free farm-fresh produce.
In addition to more than 30 vendors selling their goods, local musicians will play on center stage. The center lawn will be open to the public.
Opening day music will be provided by Stillhouse Road from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Stillhouse Road features the talents of Joe and Paula Ferrario and offers a blend of original songs, bluegrass, mountain music, and gospel favorites with acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and bass. The band’s website is stillhouseroad.com.
