Produce aplenty at the Plymouth Farmers Market

Although the Plymouth Farmers Market had a later start than expected after being canceled the previous week due to weather, there was produce aplenty as it got underway July 5. The City of Plymouth’s Jessie Koch described the crowd was a little lighter than normal and listed a combination of factors, including the Fourth of July holiday, the heat, and Music in Plymouth scheduled for the same evening. “I think it will only get better,” Koch said. The Plymouth Farmers Market is open every Wednesday (weather permitting) 2:30-6:30 p.m. through Oct. 11 at Parkers Lake Playfield, 15500 County Road 6.
