In addition to great produce, baked goods, and crafts, you will find music, a kid’s booth, and most recently a fashion show at the Saturday Chelsea Farmers Market. The latter was part of this year’s Sidewalk Sales festivities.

This week, some of the vendors may decide to leave early to avoid the Chelsea Community Fair parade that begins at 1 p.m. downtown so you might want to get your produce early.

The market is located at Palmer Commons and runs from 8 a.m.-1 p.m.

Load up on corn, tomatoes, zucchini, beans, potatoes, and many more of the fresh vegetables from summertime this Saturday. There are also fruits, eggs, cheeses, and meats for sale.

In addition, you’ll find a variety of breads available, from sourdoughs to baguettes, along with a huge selection of cookies.

Artisans at the market sell their own handmade wood crafts, pottery, and jewelry.

Saturday market vendors this season include Brieland Shoultz Farm, Bordine Farms, Goetz Family Farm, Heim Gardens, Jacob’s Fresh Farm Shares, Kapnick Orchards, Lake Divide Farm, Merkel Gardens and Greenhouses, Tantré Farm, Two Tracks Acres, La Baguette, Lakehouse Bakery, Stone Hearth Bakery, Sweet & Salty (cookies), Raterman (sourdough bread), Fluffy Bottom Creamery, Para Para Creamery, H&H Sugarbush, LLC, Shoreline Wild Salmon, Affeathermations, Awakened Provisions, Bristle’s Handmade and Homegrown, Debbie’s Beads, Lavender and Honey Herbal Apothecary, Country Hills Pottery, Elderwoods, Hoppy Soap, Holdwick, Santa Rosa Watercolors, Smellz so Good (candles), Thistle Blossom Herbal.
