OWOSSO MAYOR Chris Eveleth rang the bell to signify the closing of the 2017 Downtown Owosso Farmers Market on Saturday, Oct. 28. Eveleth thanked the market’s many volunteers, vendors, and customers, in addition to market masters Tracey Peltier and Karen Marumoto. Eveleth noted later that he is looking forward to ringing in the 2018 market season at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 5.

The Downtown Owosso Farmers Market’s final day included a trunk-or-treat put on by several local police departments. Also, many visitors who rode the Pere Marquette 1225 from Alma to Owosso for the Steam Railroading Institute’s Curwood Highlander event got an opportunity to experience the market’s festivities before the final bell tolled at 1 p.m.
