Living history at the farmers market

The Heathsville Farmers Market will celebrate “Living History Day” on September 17. The market will be held from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at Rice’s Hotel/Hughlett’s Tavern, 73 Monument Place, Heathsville. Local historical groups will set up an “encampment” on the Tavern Green. The public will be able to learn about local history and enjoy a festive historical flag display. Children will have a chance to “attend” an 18th Century school lesson. The market will offer produce, meat, eggs, jams, pickles, baked goods, peanuts, barbecue sauce and handcrafts.
