Twenty-five vendors are expected Saturday as the Shawano Farmers Market wraps up its first season at Franklin Park.

Market director Nathan Falk said the market has attracted more customers and vendors than in previous years.

“We have attracted new vendors that have found our market pleasing,” he said. “We hope to have a strong end to our farmers market season.”

The market was held in the City Hall parking lot for its first six years before moving to the park at the corner of Division and Washington streets in June.

The market is operated by Shawano Farmers Market Inc., a nonprofit group organized last year after the Business Improvement District relinquished responsibility and management of the seasonal weekly market.
