Seeking additional vendors
The market already has an excellent array of quality local vendors, but there are a couple of additional areas we would like to cover. We are currently looking for vendors in the following areas:
- Prepared food
- Quality artisans
- Small scale
- Primary producers
Call for volunteers
The market is organized by volunteers and we're looking for additional people who think the market is a good idea and would be willing to support it with a bit of their time. In particular we are looking for people who are able to help with setup and teardown on market days. Even if you can participate one day a month that would make a huge difference. Please contact us by email at email@example.com if you are interested in participating in this exciting adventure.
