PEORIA (WEEK) — For the first time in 2021, the Peoria Riverfront Farmers Market welcomed visitors from all around the area Saturday.
Several dozen vendors were on hand, featuring a huge selection of fresh produce, local meats, eggs, fruits, veggies, dairy products and more.
The market also showcased a ton of art and homemade handicrafts like pottery, blown glass, wood items and even handcrafted soaps.
Local creators say getting back out for this season means to world both to them and their businesses.
“People really missed going to these type of things. The socialization – being able to buy local,” said Corie Bartley, owner of Moonlit Organics. “(Vendors) had a lot of stock built up last year, so to get out and get it out to the people who want it, it is really a blessing to be back out.”
The market will run every Saturday until September 25th.
It is always on the lookout for new vendors, too – those interested can apply for a booth at visitdowntownpeoria.com/peoria-riverfront-market.
