Farmers Market Walkabouts to learn City Hall history

The Farmington Farmers Market’s walking club will learn about the history of Farmington City Hall during Saturday’s one-mile jaunt.

The group steps off at 10 a.m. from the west-side Riley Park entrance, then heads west toward 23600 Liberty Street. Economic and Community Development Director Kevin Christiansen will share information about city hall sites and how Farmington became a city.

Walkers who register at the market information tent receive an incentive for finishing five miles: a Beaumont drawstring backpack, small first-aid kit, and a shoe-clip light.

Also happening this week at the downtown Farmington market:

  • Music at the Market, 10 a.m., welcomes Dan Goree.
  • Strawberries are on the Market Recipe Board. Learn more: farmingtonfarmersmarket.com/Weekly-Specials/Market-Recipe-Board.aspx
  • Register at the information tent for a chance at the weekly market basket, which includes contributions from market vendors.
  • More than 40 vendors will attend. View the map here.
  • The market is rain or shine, and masks are no longer required.
