ALTON – Happy Acres Community Market, on the site of the historic Happy Acres Hall, announces a new startup, beginning May 19.

On Friday afternoons from 3-6 pm, stop by and say hello to local vendors offering farm products, grab n’ go suppers, a once-a-month yard sale, crafts, demonstrations and more. The priority is on locally-sourced items from the Alton community and surrounding area.

All types of vendors are welcome. Vendors are responsible for all licenses and permits, are responsible for their set up at 2:30 pm, and break down of their areas outside of the Hall. Space rental is $5.00 a day (if you pay for the month in advance, the first week of the following month is free). You may purchase items for resale, providing there is no other locally produced item available, and is identified as to source. Local items have priority. The market will be held rain or shine; contact Bonnie at 659-4887 for more information.
