About me

Introduction Three local women have set out to show people they don’t have to drive hours to find the treasures of a french country market or a farmer’s market. Instead, people will be able to find everything along the I & M Canal in Morris. “We felt Morris is a great community and it needs one.” Tessone, Monica Vogel, and Jillian Haupt make up Three French Hens. “We needed a name, so there is three of us, it’s a french market and we are women, so hens,” Vogel said. Haupt said it presented itself as a perfect opportunity to showcase people from the area who have wares to sell. They said one of the goals of the market is to bring people to Morris to show them all the town has to offer. They chose to start the market to coincide with Nostalgia Days so families could spend the day doing things together. To supplement the 45 vendors scheduled for the first market, those attending will receive bags containing a town map indicating what type of stores are on each street. In case of rain, the market will be held in the old Firehouse Restaurant building. By Heidi Terry-Litchfield
