Flag Day in US isn’t always treated as a big event, however the High Point Farmers Market – in partnership with the Alexander Martin Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution – is making a big deal out of it this year.

Flag Day is celebrated each year on June 14, but, in this case, the Farmer’s Market will hold the Flag Day festivities on Saturday, June 10, because the Farmer’s Market is on Saturdays and not Wednesdays.

The happening will be at the High Point Public Library at 901 N. Main St.

From 9 a.m. to noon on June 10, representatives of the Daughters of the American Revolution will be at the market providing information about the organization. Joining them will be staff from the library’s Heritage Research Center as well as members of the High Point Historical Society to share information about the resources provided by those groups.

On that Saturday, the market will feature live music by Evan Blackerby.

The Funnel Cake King food truck will be there and Kibi’s Crazy Casserole will hold a healthy cooking demonstration.

At 10 a.m., the High Point Central Marine Corp Junior ROTC will present the colors, and Councilman Cyril Jefferson will speak on behalf of the City of High Point.

Historical Society members will be on-site from 10 a.m. to noon sharing information about their work with the High Point Museum: preserving the history of greater High Point “in order to foster a shared appreciation of the diverse stories, artifacts, events and traditions of our community.”

The Historical Society, which is a staunch advocate for the High Point Museum, provides programs and support to the museum and the library’s Heritage Research Center.

Also, the High Point University School of Pharmacy will perform health checks and answer questions about over the counter and prescription medications.

Of course, there will also be great food at the  farmers market, as there will be every Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. until Oct. 28.

The farmers market features fresh produce, meat, poultry, eggs, baked goods, plants and handicrafts.  The market accepts SNAP benefits and offers a Double-the-Bucks program. Guilford Community Cares Network clients who present their orange card and a photo ID will receive $15 worth of tokens to purchase produce from market vendors.
