Opening Day, Friday, June 2

Opening day at the Taylor Farmer's Market will start with a Healthy Taylor Walk around Heritage Park at noon. Mayor Rick Sollars will attend the opening before staffers lead the walk. 

The market will give away marigold flower seedlings for free (while they last!). The marigold is the official City of Taylor flower. No annual is more cheerful or easier to grow than marigolds. These flowers are the spendthrifts among annuals, showing a wealth of gold, copper, and brass into our summer and autumn gardens. The flower’s popularity probably derives in part from its ability to bloom brightly all summer long.

The Youth Arts Competition will be featured in the pavilion, with the winners announced at 5 p.m. Several categories involving different age groups will be part of the competition.

Power of Produce Day -- kids shop the market with tokens and engage in POP activities.
