Calling All Interested Farmers and Artisans

The PERC Farmers and Artisans Market is seeking interested farmers and artisans.

Our highly visible location on the grounds of the First Presbyterian Church complex on South Street offers participating vendors  terrific opportunity to promote your business, sell your products and connect with others in community.
