Off-Season Market starts Nov. 15

I would like to thank everyone in the community for supporting the Williston Farmers’ Market. It was another very successful season with many returning and several new vendors. The market just keeps growing and will continue with support from the community and the hard work and wonderful products from the vendors.

The Williston Farmers’ Market is very excited to announce that there will be an Off-Season Market once a month from November until April. This is a great way to continue getting local produce, specialty foods and unique one-of-a kind gifts for the holidays and throughout the winter months.

If you are interested in becoming a vendor for the Off-Season Market or for next year’s regular season market, please contact me at 872-7728.

Here are the details:

Dates: Nov. 15 and Dec. 13, 2008, and Jan. 10, Feb. 7, March 7 and April 4, 2009.

Time: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Place: Old Brick Church Meeting Room, Route 2, across from the Town Hall; parking is behind the church via Library Lane.

Plans for an upcoming Youth Market to be held during the Off-Season Market are under way. Be sure to check the Williston School Bell and the Web site www.willistonfarmersmarket.com for upcoming details.

Christina Mead, market founder/manager
