Eagle Saturday Market
Eagle’s Saturday Market is one of my favorite things to do in the summertime in Eagle! It’s a great opportunity for local business’ to showcase their goods and services. There’s demonstrations, live performances and some amazing food. It’s a great way to keep our community tight knit and it’s located in Eagle’s very own Heritage Park in downtown Eagle. It happens every Saturday from May 4-October 5 from 9 am til 2 pm.
The vendors at the Saturday market sell everything from fresh grown produce to personalized leather or metal works. There are people who sell hand crafted unique jewlery you can’t find anywhere else. It’s a great place to find a personalized gift for that one person who has everything. There are also many artists who showcase and sell their photography and paintings. Even when you don’t know what exactly you’re looking for, you can find it at the Eagle Saturday Market.
One of the best parts of the Saturday market is the food. In addition to the snow shack that’s always in the park, there are lots of local food trucks that come around. You can get pizza in a cone, authentic tacos and the greatest kettle corn that has ever graced your tastebuds. Fresh squeezed lemonade and corn dogs are a classic for a summer afternoon around downtown. It’s the perfect duo to keep you held over while enjoying the entertainment offered every Saturday.
The Saturday Market creates a perfect platform for local musicians to launch their public career. Many local artists gather to create a perfect set to create a fun and family friendly atmosphere. One of our very own Saturday Market performers just recently made it onto America’s Got Talent! Amazing things happen here in our small tight knit community.
Each Saturday of the month has a theme which keeps customers interested. On the first Saturday, there are featured guests that come and speak or perform in the gazebo. The second Saturday, the Eagle Public Library brings their book bike to lend out popular books. For the third Saturday, the market offers Parks and Rec fun with family friendly activities. The fourth Saturday offers fitness pop ups at the park at 7:30am before the Market opens. Lastly but not least, the fifth Saturday (this year June and August) everyone’s favorite, GIVEAWAYS!
This is one of the greatest activities our community puts on and I know that you would love it! It’s one of the many reasons that I love Eagle. Head down this summer and take a look, I’ll meet you at the market!
