Main Street Fairmont and the Fairmont Farmers Market are happy to host Hometown Market located on Monroe Street and in the green space between Adams and Monroe Street and Palatine Park. The markets will include fresh produce from the farmer’s market, arts & craft vendors, food vendors, children’s events and games, entertainment, and other feature events throughout the summer. In case of rain, the market will be held in the parking garage so no hometown market will be canceled due to weather.
