GOODRICH — The Goodrich Farmer’s Market is back in full swing for the 2011 season and better than ever.

Although the market has been a village tradition for many years, Brenda Hawkins, market manager, said this year they wanted to try something new to attract the locals.

Like years past, Hawkins said they will have many of the vendors the community is used to seeing there such as Otis Acres and Tommy D’s honey. In addition to the numerous greenery, fresh produce and homemade goods, vendors this year are also being allowed to sell their “used treasures.”

Also new to the market this year is glass yard art, vintage cement statuary and weekly drawings.

“Everyone who visits enters their name, and a winner is picked who (gets) an item from a vendor,” Hawkins said, noting some of the past prizes have been a loaf of banana bread and a bottle of honey mustard.

Currently, the market has seven vendors and runs every Thursday from June through September from 3-7 p.m. at Goodrich Commons Park.

Those interested in becoming a vendor are asked to pick up an application at the Goodrich Village Office, located at 7338 S. State Road. For more information contact the Village at 810-636-2570.
