The Newcomerstown Farmers Market began operations May 11 in the Newcomerstown Public Library parking lot from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The main parking lot will be closed to traffic during the Farmers’ Market. The purpose of the Newcomerstown Farmers’ Market is to promote local agriculture and provide fresh, seasonal foods as well as locally grown plants and locally produced products for sale to the public. It will be open each Friday through the second Friday in October. The Newcomerstown Public Library hosts the Farmers’ Market free of charge. To participate, vendors must grow, raise or make what they sell. Vendors who live in Tuscarawas, Coshocton, Guernsey, Harrison and Holmes County will be given priority if space becomes limited. All vendors must complete and sign a vendor application including a Participation Waiver and Hold Harmless statement before setting up a booth. A full list of rules and the vendor application including the participation waiver and the "Hold Harmless" statement may be found on www.nctlib.org or www.facebook.com/nctlib/
