The first of Powell's three annual street markets will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 4.

More than 100 vendors selling everything from antiques and crafts to farm-grown produce and foods will line the streets of downtown Powell.

The market will take place rain or shine in the "four corners" area of the city, near the intersection of Olentangy and Liberty streets.

The seasons' two other markets are planned for Sundays July 27 and Sept. 7.

Powell's fifth-annual Touch-A-Truck event will take place 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at Adventure Park, 260 Village Park Drive.

Touch-A-Truck allows children to get up close to the large vehicles such as fire trucks, police cars and ambulances.

Because of the size and number of vehicles participating, parking will be limited at Adventure Park.

People are encouraged to park at city lots at 44 N. Liberty St. and 47 Hall St., and to take advantage of the bike paths leading directly to the park, Bowers said.

Touch-A-Truck is free.

Members of the Powell Area Garden Club will be at the Powell Market Day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, May 4.

They will help gardeners select plants from an array of more than 30 different perennials and 26 types of herbs. Many of the plants were selected for their hardiness and growth in this area. The club has expanded its annual plant sale, which in the past has been offered at the Powell Liberty Historical Society's Pancake Day.

The club recently received another award for its newsletter, Muddy Boots. At the state Convention of The Garden Club of Ohio, they were awarded second place for a small club newsletter. The editor is Ingie May.

Anyone interested in the Powell Area Garden Club is encouraged to call its president, Eddi Reid, (740) 803-0569.
