Marysville's Homegrown returns to Third Street

MARYSVILLE — Marysville’s annual street fair, HomeGrown, welcomes visitors to enjoy its diverse array of artists, craftspeople, food vendors, and local producers of farm products and flowers.

HomeGrown 2011 will take place Aug. 12-13 on Third Street and will showcase Washington state artistry and quality, hand-crafted products. Organizers have also sought out musicians and street entertainers who are interested in performing in an encouraging, family-friendly environment on the downtown Marysville streets.

“Historic Third Street continues to offer convenient shopping in the heart of Marysville,” HomeGrown spokesperson Vicki Miniken said. “While at the festival, be sure to browse, shop and delight at the wonderful shops around Third Street. The eateries on Third Street have become local favorites, and wide varieties of goods and services are available, including gourmet foods, gifts, home décor, antiques, furniture, books, clothing, a nursery, a floral shop, pharmaceuticals and a fitness center.”

HomeGrown is in its 26th season and is sponsored by the Downtown Marysville Merchants Association. More than 80 booths will run down the center of Third Street from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Aug. 12 and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 13.
