Business Spotlight - June 2021
Farmer’s markets play a pivotal role for small farmers and producers along with residents providing access to fresh produce and other products. The Riverwest Market, held on Sundays from 10 - 3pm, June through October, on the 2700 block of N. Pierce is a great example. Hosting over 30 full season vendors, along with various rotating vendors, there is something for everyone.
