  • Staff Report 

The Lyons Farmers’ Market is celebrating its 50th year of bringing fresh, locally grown produce, meats, baked goods, and crafts to the community. As the oldest continuously operating farmers’ market in Wayne County, it invites everyone to join the festivities with special activities and events throughout the season.

The market is open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at the Town Park on 12 Church St., in front of the Wayne County Courthouse. Founded in 1974 by Barbara Harper and Marge Perez, the market originally featured about 50 vendors. It has grown over the years, with current managers Bill Young, Jill Herendeen, Joan Delaro, Linda Fisher, and Adam Bullock ensuring its continued success.

This year, the market offers a variety of special activities, live music, and a range of food and crafts. Highlights include themed days like Safety Day, Farm to Table Day, and Garlic Day, as well as a weekly bake sale fundraiser for local groups. Shoppers can enjoy live music performances, delicious breakfast sandwiches, fresh sourdough bread, and handmade crafts from local artisans. The market also supports the community with programs like Double Up Food Bucks for SNAP benefits.
