Farmers Market friends are celebrating the market at the 4th annual Gather with the Growers party. Come on down to Squatters on Monday, June 6, for a festive evening of flavors from over two dozen Downtown Farmers Market vendors, live music from Red Rock Hot Club and a selection of local spirits. There will also be a silent auction featuring items from the Downtown Art and Craft Market and, as they say, more!

The fun starts at 5; tickets are $40/single; $75/double; $50 at the door. All proceeds benefit the Downtown Farmers Market. For more info and to buy tickets, go to
