-A A +A

Bronson will be the home of the county's only farmer's market beginning in May.

Town Council members unanimously approved the time of the monthly event at Monday's regular meeting.

The market will take place the first Saturday of every month, from 8:30 a.m. until noon along Main Street, near the gazebo.

Council member Bruce Greenlee said the market would be a good way to encourage business in Bronson. "We've got to start somewhere."

Town Clerk Kelli Brettel said she's heard good things from the community about the market, which, in the early stages, will have anywhere from 15 to 20 vendors who will pay $15 to rent a space measuring 13-by-13 feet.

"Our market features all your favorite local farmers’ products plus, local baked goods, prepared foods, meats and fish, cut flowers, plants, crafts and much more," a Bronson advertisement stated.

Overflow parking will be accommodated by parking spaces near the courthouse, Brettel said, and vendors will be responsible for taking care of their own trash.
