Have you ever thought about being a vendor at a farmers market but didn’t know how to get started?
To learn more about what it takes to be a vendor, come to an informational meeting at 6 pm on Thursday, March 13, at the Box of Books Library on Main Street in Alfred.
Peg Eisenhardt, owner of Hedgerow Farm Bakery, will explain what’s involved in selling crafts, vegetables, plants, eggs, meat, baked goods, and prepared foods at farmers markets in our area.
It may be cold outside, but the Alfred Farmers Market is busy making plans for the 2014 season.
First, a big thank you to everyone who helped to make the 2013 season a success: the vendors, the shoppers, our market manager who keeps everything running smoothly, the musicians, contributors to the educational program, and Alfred University who provides the space.
In 2014, the market will continue to meet 11 am to 3 pm on Sundays, from July 20 through November 23.
The market is located on the Alfred Village Green, at the corner of Main Street and Saxon Drive, in the Village of Alfred.
When the weather turns too cold, the market will be moved to the McLane Center on North Main Street in Alfred, on the Alfred University campus.
We’re exciting about the upcoming season and look forward to seeing you there!
