The Alton Farmer's and Artisan's Market has a new home for 2014, and organizers are already anticipating a big season.  The market will be located to the corner of Henry Street and Landmarks Boulevard, directly across the highway from the 2011 location.  

The markets are traditionally held each Saturday morning and Wednesday evening throughout the summer.  Alton Main Street Executive Director Sara McGibany says the new parking lot has 300 parking spots to offer.

McGibany comments

The market boasts items that are at least 50-percent homegrown or handmade and attracts shoppers and sellers from around the River Bend each week.  If you'd like more information about the market, contact Alton Main Street at 463-1016.
