First Market of the Summer Season this Saturday!

The Windsor Farmers Market will have its first summer market this Saturday, May 30 from 11:00am to 2:00pm on the State Street Green. The following vendors will be present:  Max & Ozzies will bring bread (Focaccia), fresh eggs, and handmade kitchen towels; Contented Butterfly Farm with farm fresh eggs, USDA inspected lamb meat, and kale; The Backwoods Grove will have fresh catnip and chives and handmade bracelets,  Brookhaven will have pickles and rhubarb; Becca's Tasty Treats will have fresh baked goods including breads and sweets. Two new vendors will be here on Saturday:  The Tragic Whale sews bags including makeup, small pouches, and pencil bags; Monkey Moon Challah and Catering bakes tasty treats and will be bringing their specialty of chocolate challah. Please note that the listing of vendors may not be inclusive of who will be at the market, nor are the products listed the only ones each vendor will be bringing.

Remember to think local, buy local, be local.  When you buy from an independent, locally owned business, rather than a nationally owned businesses, significantly more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers and farms -- continuing to strengthen the economic base of the community.

Windsor Farmers Market Gearing up For Summer 2015

The Windsor Farmers Market is gearing up for the Summer 2015 season.

The recent customer survey helped us to find out exactly what our customers and non-customers are thinking about the market.  We received lots of good feedback that will be valuable for us to grow and strengthen the market.  The results of the survey suggested a few changes.  The changes are that the market will now be on Saturdays, remaining on the State Street Green and be between the hours of 11am and 2pm.  We truly hope that these changes will increase the vendor participation as well as increase the shoppers to the market.

The Market Board has distributed summer season applications to our current and previous vendors.  If you are, or know someone who is interested in joining the market as a vendor, please note the vendor information link above has the current summer 2015 application as well as the current rules for the market.  If you should have any trouble downloading/opening/printing these documents, please don't hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to either have copies available for you to pick up at a convenient location, or can snail mail them to you.

Our first Summer market on the green will be on Saturday, May 30th and the season will run until Saturday, October 17th.  We hope to see you all then!
