Palmer’s Friday Fling Features Family Fun

The ECHO - 07-15


When Courtney Price drove through Palmer to take her boys to soccer practice on a sunny Friday afternoon, she wondered about the tents set up near the downtown pavilion. They had a little time to spare, so she, with eight-year-old Gavin, and five-year-old Brayden stopped to investigate. The scents of kettle corn and barbecued pork wafted from food trucks parked on the street. Fresh produce, garden starts, and honey lined farmers’ booths. Local artisans displayed their wares and talked to passersby about their craft. It was a pleasant surprise for the Price’s to discover Friday Fling, a small weekly market that caters to families.
