Cottage Grove farmers' market opens today
The Cottage Grove United Church of Christ farmers' market will open Thursday, June 13, and run through Oct. 10.
Vendors will be available from 2:30-6:30 p.m. every Thursday in the church parking lot at the corner of Lamar Avenue and 70th Street, across from the Lamar ball fields in Old Cottage Grove.
The market will feature locally grown produce, jams, jellies, bread, soaps, candles and arts and craft items. Church members will sell homemade baked goods, hot dogs, brats, chips, soda pop and ice cream.
A portion of proceeds from the 2012 market were donated to Heifer International, an organization that provides farm animals to fight hunger and poverty around the world.
