We picked Saturday because Moscow Farmers Market has proved that it's a great day for a market and other market days have been tried with less success. We're certain that shoppers will shop at our market even if it's on the same day as Moscow Farmers Market, for the same reason people shop at Rosauers or Moscow Food Coop, even though there's Walmart, Winco and Safeway in the same town. Each farmers market will offer something unique and different that shoppers can only find there, so come to both and discover what you like about each! At the end of the day, the number one factor in making the farmers market a success is not the day of the week, it is the community support!
