OC Main Street seeks new vendors for farmers market

From staff reports

The Oil City Main Street Program is seeking vendors for the Oil City farmers market, which has typically operated on Thursdays from June through October on Central Avenue near the Oil City Library. .

Interested vendors are invited to attend a pre-season planning meeting at 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 5, in the basement meeting room of the Oil City Library.

The market is open to vendors who sell locally grown or locally produced fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, eggs, cheese, honey products, nuts, herbs, baked goods, plants and similar products.

The market also welcomes artisans and vendors offering hand-crafted items.

Kathy Bailey, the Main Street Program manager, said she hopes this year to attract not just vendors with an established customer base but also new vendors, particularly those who offer fresh fruits and vegetables and items like artisan breads, cheeses, oils, or other specialty food products.

The Main Street Program, which took over running the market in 2016, has created a Facebook page, new logo, signs and other promotional efforts for the market.
