Family-fun event at Livingston starts today

Posted

Starting today (Thursday), families can find baked goods, bounce houses, and other fun activities at Livingston Local while enjoying a fun atmosphere that harkens back to simpler times.

Livingston Local, located on the square in the town of Livingston at the corner of Highway 463 and Highway 22, starts today (April 21) and is open every Thursday until June 3 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Heather Isonhood, supervisor of Livingston Local, said the event started two years ago, but Livingston Farmer’s Markets have been going on for around 10 years.

“We moved the Livingston Farmer’s Markets to Livingston Local due to a lack of farmers,” Isonhood said. 

“Today, the idea of Livingston Local is to support local artists, businesses, and local farms, and let people know about these wonderful small businesses around town. It’s a very family-friendly event and kids love it. We’re all about great locally-grown food and hand-crafted products.”

Isonhood said the weekly event focuses on local vendors who have baked goods, jewelry and more, and it offers a kids’ area with bounce houses and laser tag.

She said Home Depot is also donating an entire area where children can make things like birdhouses, and guests can rent books from a mobile library on site.

Each market will also have live music, such as Jamie Isonhood this week. Future artists include Brian Smith, Jason Turner, and Scott Stricklin.

“Admission to Livingston Local is free, but vendor prices vary,” Isonhood said. “The vendor fee is $25 if you want to be a vendor, and you can still sign up to be a vendor by emailing livingstonlocalmarkets@gmail.com.”

“We hope to have pretty weather this week and everyone comes out to visit us,” Isonhood said.
