Hancock Tori (market) to open June 1

HANCOCK -- The Hancock "Tori" (Finnish for "market") will open its 2011 season at 9 a.m. Wednesday, June 1, on the front lawn of the former Middle School on Quincy Street, next to the Finnish American Heritage Center. The Tori hosts vendors of fresh local produce, baked goods, preserves, handcrafts, and more.

During the 2010 season at Hancock's Tori, a large display of baked goods, jams and jellies can be seen at the table of Martha Sohlden of Chassell. In the background are Sandy Soring of Copper City, 2011 Tori manager, who makes baskets, and Gustavo Bourdieu of Hancock, who sells fresh vegetables and honey.
