Market News

The last market day of a great year.

At the end of every year we seem to review the successes and...challenges that the past year brought us.
This last market year was a great one, despite the slow, cold weather and ice storms.
The market brought out more people than ever. We were able to get more breathing room as we expanded into the town square while keeping the much desired grassy space of the field where kids could play surrounded by vendors.
More people were participating and engaging in their food community and in turn more farmers and local producers were supported and their businesses growing stronger. As a group we kept almost 3/4 of a million dollars within our local food economy. That's huge! Just think of all of the meals that made!!
Our impact was more than on the food economy. We gave the opportunity to perform to over 25 musicians and we were well entertained. We connected with atleast 15 community groups who were able to inform people about their organizations. We were supported by more that 20 volunteers. And a countless number of children were educated through our kid's programs and by coming to the market each week, leaving with food for thought.
Way to go everyone! Hope you had as much fun as we did. Let's keep it growing!
Happy New Year!!
