The 2014 Alton Farmer’s and Artisan’s Market will have a new home this year and an informational kick off meeting will be held on Saturday to talk about the upcoming season. The meeting is open to past participants, new vendors, and potential volunteers and will be held at the Riverbender.com Community Center in downtown Alton at 1pm tomorrow.
Alton Main Street facilitates the markets that open June 7th, and Executive Director Sara McGibany says the meeting will be a way to get an idea of what the market is all about:
