Gardener’s Market celebrating Children’s Day

Cache Valley Gardeners Market celebrates “Children’s Day” Saturday, a day set aside for children. Gardener’s Market secretary Mary Ann Hubbell said the Market has sponsored Children’s Day for seven years. “This is the day we encourage our vendors to bring something that is more aimed at children, in addition to what they normally offer. Maybe some little something that doesn’t cost too much. We also ask that vendors and customers come and help us have craft locations throughout the market where children can come and make something. “We also make sure we have entertainment for children.” This week Colton Burbank, 15-year old author of the book “Fiddle of Fire” will be on hand signing and selling his book. Representatives of Stokes Nature Center will be on hand with information and activities for children. “The Unicorn Children’s Theatre will be there Saturday, too, doing small performances throughout the day,” said Hubbell. Hubbell said business at this year’s Gardener’s Market started slowly the first few weeks, due to the weather. “It’s really kicked in lately,” she said. “The Sun City people are here and they love coming to the market. We have many faithful customers we see every year. It’s been remarkable, there’s a little bit of everything offered for people at market.” The Cache Valley Gardener’s Market is a vendor owned market and Hubbell said it is close to capacity as far as number of vendors. “We only have a certain section of Merlin Olsen Central Park we’re allowed to use. But we always encourage vendors who feel they have a very unique item to drop by the Market Manager’s Table and show it to us.” Hubbell said now more and more produce will begin moving into the market through the summer. This year the market accepts food stamps and also has available a credit card-debit card machine. Cache Valley Gardener’s Market is open Saturdays 9 am-1 p.m. at the southwest corner of Merlin Olsen Park in Logan.
