The East Troy Farmers Market will return for its 11th season this summer with a new format.
“We decided to make the shift to two Fridays a month based on local shopper preferences,” said Vanessa Lenz, Executive Director of the East Troy Area Chamber of Commerce, which sponsors the market.
“This will allow us to feature an expanded selection of vendors and exciting activity schedule.”
The market will be held on the first and third Friday of the month, June 7 through Oct. 4, at East Troy Village Square Park, 2888 Main St. Hours of operation are 2 to 6 p.m.
The first market will run during the East Troy Chamber’s popular First Fridays event series.
The second market of the month is designed to support various industries- local artisans, makers, etc. and let locals and visitors alike enjoy the downtown experience.
