The first Hunt & Gather session of Homewood Farmer’s Market on June 6 was a bit smaller than planned, but the weather gets all the blame.

This Saturday, Hunt & Gather will be back — and bigger — on Saturday, June 27, with furnishings, crafts and collectibles in their own section at the north end of the market at 2020 Chestnut Road.

The new feature this year occurs the last Saturday of each month, but wet weather May 30 forced a one-week postponement, and a number of vendors who had planned to attend had conflicts the following week. This Saturday, the forecast looks more promising than it did at the end of May, with sunshine and temperatures in the mid-70s expected.

Five Hunt & Gather vendors got things started June 6. Curator and vendor Anna Devries said she hopes to see up to twice that many vendors for the end-of-June session.

The regular farmers market vendors will be on hand, too, with seasonal produce and fresh food. Community groups will provide information about their missions and coming events. 

Music this Saturday will be performed by guitarist Dominic Ruffalo.
