Market at the Square has been a mainstay of Urbana's summer months for the past 35 years, and is home to an average of 70 vendors every week, all of whom grow or make their own fresh produce, plants, and flowers; farm products such as meat, cheeses, eggs, and honey; and fresh baked goods and other prepared foods. There also is a wide variety of arts and crafts for sale, as well as of local food trucks dishing out everything from cupcakes to burritos.
