The new Farmers and Artisans River Market is thriving as it enters its second full month in business at Marshall’s Firemen’s Park, organizers say.

The market, nicknamed FARM, was formed by former Marshall Farmer’s Market assistant manager Becky Armstrong and runs every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. FARM started at the end of June and has grown to more than 40 vendors that sell a variety of products, including fresh local produce, baked goods, handmade crafts, canned goods and hot food vendors.
