Woodstock Farmers Market is off to a 'healthy' start
Marking their eighth season, the Woodstock Farmers Market opened on June 3; but, fickle spring storms nearly washed away the market on the following weekend.
"We had a great turnout for opening day, once again," remarked Market Manager Emily Murnen.
"Myself and our volunteers who live in the neighborhood said they heard from people all spring that they were eagerly anticipating the market's return, when they could shop with our vendors and see everyone in the community again," Murnen told THE BEE.
The market, located behind the KeyBank branch on S.E. Woodstock Boulevard, hosts 35 vendors each week, from a roster of about 48 vendors who cycle in and out throughout the season as crops come in, and as products are ready for sale, she said.
"We're always happy when we can welcome new vendors; this year including two small woman-owned farms," Murnen smiled. "During the season, look for returning features, including Kids' Booth, Community Table, and the Food Passport Program. And, remember that we have live music every week!
"It's so much fun seeing neighbors get reacquainted, and people shopping for hot ready-to-eat food and prepared items – as well as the freshest produce and fruits, as they come in throughout the season," Murnen concluded.
