A pair of events are planned for Downtown Wauseon Saturday.
The Wauseon Farmers’ Market will open for the season Saturday at 8:30 a.m. The market will remain open through 12:00 noon.
Shoppers are welcome to bring their dog along, as the market is pet friendly. Live musical entertainment is planned throughout the season.
The fresh produce will vary with the season for harvest of the fruits and vegetables. The market includes a variety of local crafters, and bakers with diverse products to share.
The Wauseon Farmers’ Market will remain open every Saturday through Sept. 24, with the exception of the Wauseon Homecoming Saturday, July 30.
The market is located on N. Fulton Street in the open lot between the Southern Breeze and lawyer’s buildings. Ample parking is available on Fulton and Beech streets as well as in the public parking lot on Depot Street.
Any interested vendors can visit wauseondowntown.org to fill out online registration for the market.
The Wauseon Downtown Association along with multiple friends from the community planned and operated the first version of the Wauseon Farmers’ Market in the summer of 2011. The original market date and time were scheduled to coincide with Cruise Nights on Fulton Street and held near the Wauseon Depot.
In 2013, it was moved to its current location and changed to its current time.
The Wauseon Congregational United Church of Christ will be hosting their annual Strawberry Shortcake Drive Thru Saturday. The church is located at the corner of Clinton and Elm streets in Downtown Wauseon.
The event begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday morning and continues until the supplies of home baked shortcake, freshly picked local strawberries, and whipped cream run out. The women of the church are asking for donations for the servings of strawberry shortcake that will be used to support the church building restoration fund.
Guests to the event should approach the east lawn of the church building via the alley that leads from Depot Street to West Elm Street. You will be served in your car. The women of the Congregational church thank visitors in advance for their support.
