Saturday will have the feel of a Farmer's Market or Crafts Fair at the Tractor Supply Store at 5881 Bayshore Road in North Fort Myers.

Tractor Supply stores nationwide are calling all farmers, craft makers and artisans to sell their homemade and homegrown goods during Tractor Supply's Market Day, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event is an opportunity for members of the community to show off their talents, whether they have been selling their goods for years or have only been dreaming of turning a hobby into a business.

"We started this a few years ago. We wanted to engage with the local communities with this national program," said Francie Fisher, Tractor Supply spokesperson. "They bring in everything from crafts to crops and organic fruit and all the talent that exists in these communities."

Whether the area of expertise is homemade crafts, candles, and soaps, or produce, baked goods, and handmade furniture, everyone is welcome to sign up. The event is free and open to the public. All participating vendors must comply with state and local ordinances.

"Our communities are filled with incredible talent," said Mary Lawley, vice president of store administration, in a statement. "As a company, we strive to support our communities and the out here lifestyle, which is why we created Tractor Supply's Market Day as a way to shine the spotlight on our talented neighbors by providing them with an easy and convenient way to share their goods with others."
