“I just love the small home town feel of West Liberty,” said Snyder, who runs the West Liberty General Store, 118 N. Detroit St. “This is a first-time event that we’re looking to grow and bring the community together.

“It’s a great opportunity to get people into my store who aren’t familiar with it yet.”

Cox, who owns Country Friends of Ohio, 216 N. Detroit St., sees the event as chance to showcase businesses to new customers.

“I’m excited about it,” she said. “We’re trying to pull in the local people in for the farmer’s market which has vendors from all over Logan County.”

Friday evening, a farmer’s market with food trucks will open around 4 p.m. along Columbus Street in front of the West Liberty Fire Department, West Liberty Business Association President  Mitch Lingrell said.

Village businesses will remain open until 8 p.m. that day.

At 6 p.m., Timmy G. and Company will take the stage for two hours of live music.

Saturday, businesses will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. along with sidewalk and street vendors. A food truck also will be operating among the Columbus Street vendors.
