Farmer's Market

The Market also boasts baked goods, specialty foods, body care products and selected arts and crafts. If you don't grow it, bake it or make it yourself -- you don't sell it at the Franklin Farmers Market -- so shoppers can be sure they are supporting their local economy as well as their own health and enjoyment.
