Delectable Dayton’s latest plan for transforming our city: initiating a Sunday Farmers Market on 5th Street in the Oregon District. We are petitioning to get 5th Street closed on Sundays during the summer and fall months to host a craft, flea and farmers market. The market will provide needed Sunday foot traffic for the existing business in the Oregon District and an outlet for the Dayton region’s artists and farmers.  The Art & Farm Market will focus on local produce (including a drop off location for CSA or farm shares) and an invitation to the vendors from the 2nd Street Market to purvey one more day of the week. Area DIY artists and crafters will be invited to exhibit and covered space will be available for art, antiques and flea market items. The objective is to create an affordable, regular venue for local artist, farmers and dealers to sell their items downtown. One stop shopping; an opportunity to support local talent and come together with our community, who could ask for more?  If you’re interested in participating or helping us make it happen, let us know!
