The West Side Farmer’s Market
MARKET FESTIVAL DAYS
All summer long, the West Side Saturday Farmers Market, a project of Growing West Side, offers fresh local food and a chance to chat with neighbors, listen to music, and enjoy locally crafted, tasty treats from fresh brewed coffee, to pastries, to breakfast burritos.
