The Alton Farmer's and Artisan's Market returns for another season this Saturday and the excitement is already building.  Last year was the biggest year so far, helped by a new larger location at the corner of 9th and Piasa Streets, and a growing list of vendors.  Alton Main Street is again coordinating the events which will run through the middle of October.

McGibany says they'll also offer a Wednesday evening market at the same location from 4-7pm, and there's plenty of space for new vendors at that time.  For more information, contact her office at 463-1016, or find a link below
