Ironwood Township plans new farmers market

 


IRONWOOD TOWNSHIP — Ironwood Township will be home to a new farmers, flea and craft market starting Aug. 6 at the Airport Recreation Park.

According to township board trustee Kathy Maki, the event was originally set to begin at the end of July, but had to be moved back until August.

The event runs from 4-7 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of every month.

“We’re hoping to go through October,” Maki said.

Organizers are seeking vendors from across the area. There is no registration fee.

“The best part is that it is free for vendors,” Maki said. “You don’t have to pay for a table, and it’s open to all different kinds of vendors, because it’s also a flea and craft market, not just for crops.”

Tables will be set up inside the pavilion, but according to Maki, there is plenty of space for everyone.

“The pavilion holds about 10 tables, but there is so much space at the park that we don’t have a limit on how many vendors can be there,” Maki said. “We hope to see a lot of people coming to see what is available. It’s a great way to bring our small community together in a great way.”

For more information or to secure a table, call the township offices at 906-932-5800.
