BARRINGTON – Tasty, housemade treats and fresh produce filled the center of downtown Barrington June 19 as the Barrington Farmer's Market began its 14th season at the intersection of Cook and Main Streets, directly across from McGonigal's Pub.

The market offers fresh food, drinks, crafts, family activities and entertainment from 2 to 7 p.m. every Thursday through mid-October. Vendors will be selling chocolate, dog cookies, peanut brittle, cut flowers, French pastries, organic produce and breads, spices and seasonings, cider, yarn, ice cream, nut butters, barbecue, kettle corn, meat, oils and vinegars, cheese, lemonade and more.

Started in 2000 by the Barrington Village Association, the market is intended to bring neighbors together and increase foot traffic in the downtown area.

The market is managed by volunteers and assisted by the village of Barrington through public works and police efforts. Visit www.barringtonfarmersmarket.org for information.
