A combination of planned and unplanned events should make the market, which is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday at the Lake Street Garden Center, a popular destination.
Last week’s Salem market — held when many local Market Baskets were running low on produce — was one of the busiest organizers have seen, according to market director Jane Lang.
On the planned side of events, Aug. 3 is the beginning of both National Farmers Market Week and New Hampshire Eat Local Month.
Also, adding to the anticipated activity on Sunday is a recent grant the market received from the New Hampshire Farmers Market Association.
