A feature of AppleFest intended to attract local crafters and artisans is "Local Row." Local enterprises, organizations and individuals will stretch between about the chamber office and Grand Mesa Drive on both sides of West Main. A recent count showed over 40 local vendor booths signed up. All will be displaying a special apple crate logo.
The locals were given a special pricing to encourage them to set up at Apple-
Fest along with all the professional festival followers who will be congregated around Town Park. Local Row allows local vendors to benefit from the large number of people who visit town for the event, chamber officials say.
Now there will be a little extra reason to feel good about that impulse purchase made at Local Row during AppleFest -- it helps the local economy.
