The City of Fife will debut its first-ever farmers market June 26, according to a city press release.

The new venture will run every Wednesday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. through Aug. 28 at Fife City Hall and the adjoining Centennial Park at the corner of 54th and 23rd streets, according to the release.

About 20 vendors will sell local farm-fresh produce, prepared and processed foods, handcrafted items and lunch-ready foods. Vendors’ stalls will line Centennial Park and a portion of Fife City Hall’s parking lot, the release says.

Fife Mayor Robert Cerqui, who is also a farmer, led the effort.

“I am excited to have this amenity for our residents, businesses and visitors and hope that this can be community treasure for years to come,” Mayor Cerqui said in the release.

A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on opening day. For more information, visit cityoffife.org.
