What’s all the talk about Rubber Duckies? Actually, the Rotary Club booth at the Market is not about rubber duckies! Those little yellow critters are an integral part of one of the Rotary’s biggest fundraiser each year. All those little plastic ducks they sell are a means to a positive end.
For 21 years, the Williamston Sunrise Rotary has sold tickets that entitle you to your own “Rotary Duck”. Then during the Red Cedar Jubilee in late June, the “Duck Drop” sends hundreds of the numbered plastic duckies down the Red Cedar River, and prizes are awarded to winning ‘Duck Owners’. Through this fundraiser, the Rotary has raised and returned to our community over $400,000 dollars.

Operated by Liz Montemayor, Zulema’s Authentic Mexican Food booth serves breakfast burritos, tacos, tostadas, rice, and beans, tamales, salsa, pico de gallo, and tortilla chips. From the moment you enter the market, you will be tempted to experience Zulema’s menu!
