It seems like the Wednesday Farmers Market located on the Whetstone Path near the co-op is slowly disappearing. Of course it has always been a smaller market that the big Saturday one but today it was really surprising. There were only 2 small farms there-both selling very limited types of produce. No berries to be found anywhere. There was the flower man; a bakery with a few tasty looking morsels. the always popular Thai food truck (with a very long line); there may have been someone selling honey but that was it. Definitely not worth the trip if you weren’t planning on going to the co -op (where I was able to find local blueberries).
The Wednesday market has always been a nice way for people who can’t get to the Saturday market for one reason or another – to still have access to local produce and support local farmers. But,if the offerings are as scant as they were today I can’t imagine it would be very profitable for any of the vendors. Maybe the early morning flash flood warnings kept vendors away? It would be a shame if this market simply disappears this early in the season.
