The Downtown Marquette Farmers Market officially opened for business Saturday.
Shoppers and their families came to browse through and purchase a variety of goods while enjoying some live entertainment as well. The market manager said that while shoppers come for the selection, they stick around for the people.
"You get to see lots of people. This is probably the largest collection of independent businesspeople in this size area. So, as you're walking around and looking at what you want, you're gonna run into your neighbors and meet new people and visit about Marquette." said market manager Myra Zyburt
Market hours are on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The market expects to remain open through October 25th.
