In the news
The Saline District Library will begin hosting a Farmers’ Market on June 1 and every Tuesday thereafter through the summer months. The Market will be located in the west parking lot and will be open from 4 to 8 pm. Leslee Niethammer, Library Director, and Nancy Crisp, Market Manager, are to be commended for providing another opportunity for Saline area residents to obtain fresh, locally produced food. Yet another sign of the forward thinking people in Saline.
In 2000, Saline Mayor Gretchen Driskell attended a Michigan Municipal League workshop aimed at enabling communities to encourage farmers' markets. She and then-city-manager Larry Stoever approached Crisp to see if she could develop such an asset for Saline, and if she would be interested in becoming market manager.
