Siren is planning on holding an open air market at Crooked Lake Park in June.
Siren Area Economic Development Director Chris Moeller brought the plan for the market to the county board for approval.
Moeller said they are planning on holding the market at the two pavilions at Crooked Lake Park similar to Siren’s Harvestfest.
“With the COVID-19 situation and related business restrictions, once the safer-at-home order is relaxed Siren businesses will need as much support and promotion as can be given,” Moeller said.
Moeller said she met with a small group to discuss ideas to promote business in Siren and came up with Siren Open Air Thursday. The preliminary plans are to hold the market on Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and it will be followed by Siren’s Music in the Park, held at the park’s bandshell.
The Market would run from June through August. Vendors would be charged a fee to offset the cost of renting the space.
Their plan is to “create a relaxing atmosphere to shop for anything from farmers’ market types of produce, products by area crafters and even book signings.”
