New for 2019, the Mountain Market will be launching the Wednesday Night Downtown Street Market.

For those who head to the lake on the weekends, this will provide the opportunity to access locally grown produce and handmade goods mid-week throughout the summer. The Wednesday Night Downtown Street Market runs 4 to 8pm weekly in July and August. The Mountain Market in Rotary Park will continue to run each week on Sundays from 10am to 2pm.
