Second Sun Market is returning to Millet in 2017.

Millet’s new summer market is returning for another successful season, noted one of the co-organizers.

The Second Sun Market is a fresh air market located in Millet right on Hwy #2A, in the open grassy area across the road from the town hall.

Shannon Paquette, who along with Carolyn White organizes the twice-monthly event, said the first market of the year will be held on June 11. The market runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Paquette said a lot of local businesspeople were disappointed when the Millet Farmers Market shutdown. She and white decided to get Second Sun up and running, which operates every second Sunday up to September.

The Conscious Soaper, Sweet Shoppe, Child’s Play Novelties, Birgit’s Garden Creations, From The Farm, Make It Yours, Carole’s Creations, Andy’s Beef Jerky and Carey’s Country Creation are all confirmed vendors.

She noted, at this point, only vendors who make handmade items can rent space at Second Sun Market. Vendors are charged a $30 fee for each market they wish to attend. There is no admission charge for shoppers.

Those interested in booking space should contact Paquette through email at secondsunmarket@hotmail.com.
