It’s more than a hunt, it’s a hop! Come to the Downtown Egg Hop on March 31 and hop around our downtown businesses to find eggs for prizes. Tons of family fun that includes free entertainment, games and activities. Starting at the Peg Bond Center at 9:45am, pick up your egg hop map with participating businesses and a goodie bag for the first 500 kiddos!

Save the date—June 2: Farmer’s Market, Race to Market, Well Batavia

This year will mark the 23rd year of the Annual Batavia Farmers’ Market which takes place every Saturday from 8am to 12pm beginning June 2 through Oct. 27 on N. River St. between Wilson and State St.

Come enjoy over 20 different vendors offering a variety of fresh vegetables, fruit, eggs, meat, cheese, herbs, flowers, music and more. Along with our weekly pop up vendors, check our website weekly for who will be in attendance. Third Saturdays will feature the Artisan Collective where you can enjoy living and shopping local. Shop for handmade items from your favorite artists and designers.

WellBatavia is a health and wellness fair designed to showcase the health, wellness, and fitness resources our community has to offer. It will promote healthy living by directly increasing the health literacy of our community on an individual level with screenings, presentations and access to vendors.

Race to Market 5K will be held in conjunction with WellBatavia and the 23rd Opening Day of the Batavia Farmer’s Market. Race to Market 5K will be run on a popular certified Fox River Prairie Path course starting at the Farmer’s Market and ending in beautiful downtown Batavia at the WellBatavia event.
