For those who can’t get up early on Saturday mornings, an evening Morrison Farmers’ Market will be held Wednesday, July 30, 2014 from 5-8 p.m. on Main Street in downtown Morrison. Produce, food, music, baked goods, meat, flowers, and artisan products from regular market vendors along with some new ones are just some of the many items that will be available. Downtown restaurants will also get in on the fun offering dining specials and vendor food items will include a corn boil, Tai cuisine, Italian beef, burritos, and free ice cream from market sponsor Farmers National Bank. “Taste of Morrison” menus will be available at the market committee tent, market facebook page, or for download at Taste of Morrison Menu. Stay for supper, while enjoying the musical entertainment by Garrett Hillary, a young man who plays various instruments including guitar, autoharp, harmonica, and piano and a variety of musical styles from country classics to rock and roll, and everything in between.
