The village is where you can go to purchase seeds, animals, visit shops, and mingle in with the townsfolk on their day off. There are 9 houses located in the village in a 3 x 3 grid set up. The Town Square is located north between the Church and the Flower shop. The shops are open Monday through Saturday from 6am (beginning of game day) to 6pm (beginning of game night). On Sunday all of the shops are closed and the shopkeepers are found wandering through the Village and in the Town Square. If it's raining/snowing outside the villagers will stay in their shops.
In the northwest corner of the Town Square is the Bulletin Board. The board holds helpful hints on how to be a good farmer, messages about new items for sale, and notices on upcoming village events. When a new message appears on the board, the word NEW will be on the message. To read a message just use the directional pad and then press the A BUTTON to select which message you want to read.
