Woodstock Farmers Market begins 12th season
Opening for its twelfth season, the Woodstock Farmers Market got off to a great start, right from their opening bell at 10 a.m. on Sunday, June 5th.
"Our market is alive with many returning activities, including live music, a community booth highlighting nonprofit organizations, and an expanded Kids Activities area provided by New Seasons Market," exclaimed Market Manager Lucinda Klicker. "And, speaking of youngsters, we're bringing back the 'Kids Passport' again this season. When they collect stamps on their 'passports', they qualify to win prizes!
"Today we have 25 vendors, and — later, at the top of the season — we'll have about 30 vendors here in our market, as the produce and fruits come into season."
The market is again providing a $20 match for SNAP and EBT users, for spending on vegetables and fruit each time they visit.
Klicker praised the volunteers who help to set up, operate, and dismantle this nonprofit market every Sunday: "And, we're still always looking for more volunteers to help out!
"One last thing: KeyBank has been so gracious for allowing us to use this property for all 12 years. We're so thankful that they are supporting the market by presenting us this amazing space for us to use every Sunday, all season long."
The Woodstock Farmers Market takes place every Sunday through October from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., on the lot behind KeyBank at 4600 S.E. Woodstock Boulevard.
