Farmers market moving to Downtown Dixon

Riverfront location could have 'ripple effect' for downtown

DIXON – Starting next week, Dixon’s farmers market will be at the riverfront.

The move to the riverfront from Haymarket Square could add more exposure and have a “ripple effect” for the downtown, Main Street Executive Director Josh Albrecht said, adding that he hopes it creates a “full-morning experience.”

The market’s first day will be timed with Main Street’s musical Fridays, which feature live music in the daytime on the riverfront. More details will be released today.

The farmers market will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Friday, and 7 a.m. to noon Saturday through October, Albrecht said. Main Street will look into the possibility of also having an indoor farmers market, he said.

The Dixon Park District used to host the farmers market at Haymarket Square, and Executive Director Deb Carey said she supports the move to the riverfront.
