The Gloucester Main Street Association is averaging 10 vendors each week during its summer event series "Market Nights on Main," according to executive director Jen Christman.

The promotion, held at the gazebo across from the Morgan Building, is scheduled from 4-7 p.m. each Wednesday through Aug. 31. Live entertainment will be offered during the Aug. 17 market. The promotion began on June 1.

Besides several farm vendors, Christman said the event also attracts some people selling crafts and baked goods. 

In conjunction with the promotion, Christman said some Main Street restaurants are offering discounts on Wednesday nights and Kelsick Specialty Market is holding a wine tasting each Wednesday. Also, some stores on Main Street are holding sales and other specials on Wednesday nights.
