The Farmers Market is a popular Moscow tradition that was established in 1976. The Saturday morning event celebrates local farmers, artists, craftspeople and musicians by providing them with an opportunity to interact directly with the community and its visitors. The Market is located in downtown Moscow on Main Street and in Friendship Square. It is held each Saturday, May through October, from 8 am to 1 pm. Local musicians perform from 9:30 am to 1 pm each week.
