You can both shop and pay homage to the earth this Saturday, April 20.

The Spring Market on Main is set for Saturday, as is Earth Day, sponsored by The Plant Niche, so please come out and shop with our vendors and local merchants. 

The Earth Day program will last from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and include live music from Jason Waldon and the Alibis, along with vendors, speakers, DIY terrariums, free trees and family fun.
