A weekly Tri-State tradition is kicking off its new season Saturday.

The Historic Newburgh Farmers Market was held at the Old Lock and Dam, drawing hundreds of people to the Newburgh Riverfront.

The event included several vendors selling locally grown, farm fresh produce.

Also in the mix, Historic Newburgh hosted various food truck, games, live music, and the first ever Strawberry Social.

"People can get out, they can have their families, they can have their dogs. They can have a good time. People can interact with each other, socialize," says Troy Wells. Historic Newburgh Executive Director. "This year, right now, we really are gearing it towards children, and it looks like you see the events outside. We've got all kinds of fun little games for kids out there."

The Farmers Market will be open at the Newburgh Riverfront every Saturday morning from 8 a.m. thru Noon until August 21st.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
