Sandy Public Market kicks off 2014 season

With the farmers market season in full swing, the Sandy Public Market returns to downtown Sandy on Saturday, June 7. The market is held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Centennial Plaza at the corner of Pioneer Boulevard and Hoffman Avenue.

The market will take place the first and third Saturday of each month from June through September.

The market will feature a mix of farm-fresh produce, crafts and home businesses, and food vendors from Sandy and surrounding areas.

Market Manager Aubrey Erwin said this year’s market will include a new attraction: live music. “We hope to make the market bigger and better every year,” she said. “Adding music is a fantastic way to create a more enjoyable event for the whole community.”

The June 7 market will feature live music from Collins Mix Band, a three-piece band based in the Portland area.

Farmers, vendors or anyone wanting more information about the market should call 503-489-2173 or visit www.cityofsandy.com.

A full music schedule for this season is available on the website.
