Farmers market in need of organizer

However, Favreau said the village board has been supportive of various events that have been brought to the community, and would probably not have any issues with the use of the park.

"All of those details would have to be worked out," she said.

In the past, other vendors have come to the area to sell their products, without actually being a part of a market. That's an example which gives Favreau hope a new farmers market can be created.

"We have the people that come in and sell corn. They've been here ... many years," she explained. "They've come and they set up and they sell corn. They just pay a peddlers fee."

In order for the market to be held again this year, Favreau added the organizer would simply contact other vendors, such as the corn sellers, to see if they'd be interested in setting up.

"I got a lot of phone calls last year from different people that wanted to come," she said. "[The manager] would have to reach out and find people who have produce that they want to sell, and maybe crafters."

If interested in helping to bring back the market, contact Favreau at 297-2604 after March 8.

"It takes a couple of years to get something off the ground," she said.
