Many of us associate the summer months with visits to a local farmers market.

It’s a great way to meet and support local farmers and stock up on fresh, locally grown produce as well as many other items.

It can also be a fun, community event for the whole family to enjoy.

The City of Mill Creek is currently working with the Mill Creek Town Center Business Association to come up with a suitable location to hold a farmers market in Mill Creek. There’s no news yet but we’ll keep you posted.
