ADRIAN — The Adrian Community Market offers fresh produce, preserves, handmade pottery and textiles, fresh pies and more to locals and people passing though town. Now in its second year, the market has staked its claim next to Succor Creek Coffee from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the first and third Fridays of the summer months.

Part of the proceeds go towards the Adrian 2040 Project, a longterm effort to revitalize the town and make sure, come 2040, the community is as strong as ever.

The market runs through the first and third Fridays in September.
