Effingham Mayor, Jeff Bloemker, proclaimed that the week of August 7th through the 13th will be Effingham Farmer’s Market Week. During Effingham Farmer’s Market Week, the citizen’s of Effingham will be able to join those from around the country in celebrating the thousands of farmer’s markets in our country, and the role that farmer’s markets have in the agriculture and food fields.
Mayor Bloemker stated, ” The Farmer’s Market has become a genuine community asset. The variety and quality of produce and baked goods to be found there every Saturday morning is a real joy. They even have live music. I absolutely love to see all the people gathering and using the Old Courthouse Lawn in this manner. Nancy Sehy and her cohorts are to be congratulated and thanked for managing this environment into a successful annual presence!”
