The next Fostoria Farmers’ Market will be held on Saturday, September 4th from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the grass lot on the corner of East Tiffin and South Main Streets. Saturday’s market is being sponsored by the Fostoria Community Arts Council.
#FostoriaRocks, the Facebook group, will be at the Fostoria Community Arts Council’s booth, helping anyone that would like to paint a rock to be placed at various locations. Fostoria Rocks is a community project to help inspire others and foster creativity in Fostoria and the surrounding area. It's a hide-and-seek game of sorts. Grab a paintbrush, get creative, find some great hiding spots, and be on the lookout for these hidden gems! The group will have rocks to find around the market.
In addition, Plein air artists (artists that paint out in the open) have been invited to paint at and around the Farmers’ Market/downtown area that day. Painters might be spotted painting anywhere from the municipal yard down to the parkette.
Nearly 40 vendors are slated to participate in Saturday’s Fostoria Farmers’ Market, offering a wide variety of items including produce, plants, baked goods, honey, jams, handmade soaps, lotions and body care and many unique, handmade crafts, gifts and customized items.
The market is held rain or shine.

- Post your pictures, stories or clues on this page, and then hide new rocks or relocate rocks you find to a different spot for someone else to find.
- If you want to keep the rock you find, be sure you replace it with a rock that you have painted.
- Hide all rocks outdoors (please don't hide them indoors).
- Use paints that will withstand weather (such as acrylic) and use a clear coat (such as mod podge or polyurethane spray) to seal it.
- Try to add the FB group name on the back of the rock so people who find them will know where to post pics. "FB Fostoria Rocks"
- Please don't place rocks in places that could damage property.
- Please don't be hateful to each other. If anyone is having issues there are 3 administrators at this time. Message one of us. We will work the best we can to get it resolved.
- Please only paint and place Rocks.
- -When hiding rocks around town, please make sure you keep them out of the grass, do not place in trees, statues, fountains, monuments, or walkway's. The workers who cut the grass don't want to hurt anyone while mowing.
- Please do not place Rocks in medians or close to busy intersections and roads. Kids are out looking for these rocks and we want to keep everyone safe. Please keep that in mind when you place or hide your rocks. If you have to question if its a dangerous spot to place your rock, it probably is.
- Since kiddos will see the rocks as well as these FB posts, please no inappropriate paintings or comments. Any inappropriate posts will be deleted immediately.
