Buy Local in Belmont this Sunday

BELMONT — Enjoy some leisurely shopping on Sunday, June 28,at the first of four Farmer's Markets planned for Belmont this summer.

The market is located next to the Belmont Mill and Tioga Pavilion on Mill St. and will ve open from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Visitors can talk with vendors and learn about their wonderful, local products such as maple syrup, goat's milk soap, bat houses, and yummy kettle corn, whoopie pies, breads, and more.

This month's Farmer's Market day will feature hula-hoops for moving and grooving; sidewalk chalk for budding artists; and "make and take" fireworks paintings to commemorate the upcoming 4th of July holiday. With all of these activities to entertain the kids, parents will have plenty of time to visit with vendors.

There will be tables and chairs set up, so visitors can sit back and relax and join in on the "puzzle of the month", a summer scene of cherries and lemonade. Into chess or cribbage? Bring it along!

Everett Bailey, maker of Shaker-style brooms, will be demonstrating his craft under the new Tioga Pavilion. It's an amazing transformation, and Everett loves to share his interest of the Shaker ways with new faces.
