A new farmer’s market in Millet this summer was a big hit with vendors and customers, says one organizer.

Second Sun Market was held every second Sunday from June to September, said organizer and vendor Shannon Paquette Sept. 15. “It went really well.” She noted Millet used to have a farmers market, but Paquette, who makes and sells handmade soap, found out that the farmers market had closed permanently.

Paquette and a partner decided to start a new market called Second Sun. “The two organizers are myself and Carolyn White,” she stated in an email. “We received assistance with permits from Vicki Pyle at the town office.

“A few vendors that were present at most of the market dates were; Haywire Farms, Sweet Shoppe, The Conscious Soaper, Country Chic Metal Art, Birgit’s Garden Creations and Busy Bee Honey Farm.” Paquette said Second Sun was set up across the street from the town office and things went well enough plans are in place to return next summer.

While it’s wrapped up for this season, the Second Sun Market hours will be from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
