Winter Farmers' Market seeks vendors
BRATTLEBORO -- Vendor applications are now being accepted for the ninth season of the Winter Farmers' Market, which will again be held at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden.
Space for new vendors is limited but interested parties are encouraged to submit an application prior to the Sept. 1 deadline.
The Winter Market opens Nov. 1 for the 2014/2015 season and will be open every Saturday through March 28, 2015, for a total of 22 markets. The regular market hours will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with hours extended to 3 p.m. for holiday shopping on the three December markets before Christmas.
An array of products are typically offered including locally grown and produced fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, baked goods, local wines, handcrafted items such as clothing, jewelry, pottery, soaps, lunch menus and more. Preference is given to regional agricultural vendors interested in bringing new unduplicated products to our market.
This is a juried market. New vendors or returning vendors with new craft, prepared food or value-added products will need to present their items for jury at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 9, at the Community Room of Brattleboro Savings & Loan. Agriculture vendors selling farm produce do not need to be juried.
For questions on the jury process call Susan Dunning at 802-228-3230. The application and market policy information can be found at www.postoilsolutions.org. For more information, contact Sherry at 802-869-2141 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Winter Farmers' Market is a project of Post Oil Solutions, a citizen group based in Windham County seeking to advance cooperative, sustainable communities due to our concerns about global climate change and the end of cheap oil.
