Imlay City Farmer’s Market plans “historic” event
Horse-drawn carriage rides to be offered
IMLAY CITY — Next Thursday is the last Thursday of the month, which means it’s special event time at the Imlay City Farmers Market. Market organizers will be teaming with the Imlay City Historical Commission to celebrate “Historic Imlay City.”
Historical Commission members will narrate a horse-drawn tour with information about the beautiful and significant homes along the route.
Tours are scheduled for 1, 3, and 5 p.m. Visitors can reserve a space on one of the tours by calling market manager Juliane Bagley at 810-725- 2135, Ext. 312 or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org before 5 p.m. Sept. 25.
The Imlay City Historical Museum, which is a short block south of the farmers’ market, will be open from 1 to 6 p.m. offering visitors a chance to explore Imlay City’s rich and colorful history.
Imlay City Downtown Development Authority Director Kim Marrone said the market will hold a Historic Scavenger Hunt. Shoppers can pick up a list of hunt items from the market’s information tent and then start scouring the market and the museum for the items. Marrone said people can turn in their completed list in exchange for “Market Money” that can be used for anything at the farmers’ market.
The late September harvest season will be in full swing with a bounty of fresh vegetables, fruits and berries available from our produce vendors, Marrone said. Market vendors will also be offering event day specials. “With the holiday season approaching,” Marrone said, “this will be a great opportunity to find that special gift.”
The Imlay City Farmers Market is located on the corner of Third and Main streets in downtown Imlay City. For more information on this event, visit the DDA website at www.icdda.com or follow “Imlay City Farmers’ Market” on Facebook.
