ALTOONA, Wis. (WEAU) -- A new farmers market kicked off Monday afternoon in Altoona.


Community members gathered at the outdoor plaza at River Prairie to visit about eight vendors.

Families were able to listen to music and eat lots of goodies.

The farmers market will run from 4 to 7 p.m.

Organizers say they're looking to target the evening market as people are getting off work.

The farmers market in Altoona is scheduled every Monday afternoon through the end of October.
