Every Other Saturday
Rain or Shine!


Starting January 13 to early May, look for us every other Saturday!


If you haven't joined us before in the off-season, here's how it works:


We have a smaller group of vendors, all of whom have a way of pre-ordering. Every other Saturday from 10:00AM to 12:00PM, they set up on the lower level of the parking lot behind the Township Building. You can pick up your orders, and most vendors bring a little extra to tempt you.
