New Third Saturday Arthur Market
On the third Saturday of each month, 15-20 crafters, some antiques, bakers, and who knows who, gather in the Events Building at the Moultrie -Douglas Fair Grounds behind the High School in Arthur to display and sell their wares. Indoor and outdoor year around, with outdoor space for vendors unless it is actually snowing ( and there have even been a few,) the market results in an ever changing selection of unique items that visitors and locals alike really enjoy.Farm fresh produce at an Arthur summer market
