Backus to get its own farmers market

Products will be for sale on Thursdays


BACKUS — Backus will get its own farmers market starting June 1 at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church parking lot from 3:30-6:30 p.m. Thursdays.

The goal of the Backus Farmers Market is to offer locally grown, healthy, fresh produce and homemade goods to the community at an affordable price in a safe, positive atmosphere.

The Backus Farmers Market Committee encourages anyone with ideas to help make the initiative successful to join them at a preparation meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, at Emmanuel Lutheran church.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
