Millet’s ‘Second Sun’ market returns this June

Venue change for market: now at agriplex

Some warm, pleasant Sundays you might be wondering what to do to fill a few hours. Well, you should head out to Millet for the “Second Sun” Market this summer.

Organizer Shannon Paquette said the market is aptly named, as it’s held in Millet at the Agriplex every second Sunday of the month, June to September.

Previously held on the lawn across from the town office, Paquette said being at the Agriplex gives an option in case of bad weather. “We teamed up with the ag society, so they’re allowing us to set up at the Agriplex this year,” said Paquette by phone May 17.

“It’ll be rain or shine for sure.” Paquette said if the weather is disagreeable, the market will set up in the Agriplex.

The first Second Sun Market of the season will be Sunday, June 10, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Paquette said a special event will be held that day: local business RoughNeck HQ will be giving free gold panning lessons during the market.

Paquette said the market will also have it’s usually selection of great local vendors, including products like farm vegetables, farm eggs, baked goods, handmade jewelry, handmade soap, stained glass art, beef jerky and lots of other great products.

Opening day will also feature free giveaways donated by vendors.

Paquette said admission is free to the market.
