On Saturday, May 12, at 10 a.m., downtown Rutland will host the Farmers’ Market "Spring Into Summer" Parade to celebrate Rutland’s farmers’ market community as it returns to Depot Park for the summer market season. The procession will depart from the market’s winter home on at The Rutland Area Food Co-op on Wales Street, down Center Street and into Depot Park where Mayor Christopher Louras will officially kick off the summer market with the ceremonial radish toss.

The parade will feature animals, musicians, and various other revelers all on hand to welcome another growing season in Vermont.
