Milton Farmers Market held a soft opening April 19 in anticipation of its grand opening Friday, April 26. Celebrating its third season, the market in downtown Milton on the corner of Union Street and Magnolia Street across from the library, is open every Friday from 3:30 until 6:30 p.m., offering fresh local meats, plants, baked goods and produce along with live music and barbecue meals.
