Saturday, March 30, 2013, marks the final week for the 7th season of the Winter Farmers’ Market.
It is also the 6th Annual CSA Fair hosted at Post Oil Solutions’ Winter Farmers’ Market. A variety of CSA(Community Supported Agriculture) Farms will join our regular market line-up to offer information about their farming operations and their CSA share options.
Take this opportunity to do your CSA research and pick your farmer for 2013! You will find farms with weekly CSA shares for vegetables, fruit, medicinal herbs, meat and more. Some offer deliveries to central pick-up locations while many invite you to visit their farms each week and get to know their operation. Some farms even invite you into their fields to lend a hand in picking the weeks harvest. So join a CSA. It’s a great way to support local agriculture and the local economy!
In addition to the CSA Fair, and the usual delights of the market, we will also be featuring live music in the café from 11:00-1:00 by the ballad singing trio, Maythorn.
This will also be the final week for 3SquaresVT customers to cash in all of those Market Match Coupons we have distributed this season.
The Winter Farmers Market offers fresh greens, apples, maple syrup, local eggs, grass-fed beef, pork and lamb, locally raised chickens, baked goods, local preserves, hand-made soaps, jewelry, pottery, hot lunches, and so much more.
We thank the River Garden and the Greater Brattleboro Community for yet another record setting season of the Winter Farmers’ Market. When you support farmers’ markets you support your local economy and vote with your dollars for safe, nutritious local food.
Stay tuned for news about our 2013/2014 season as market organizers watch the developments at the River Garden and consider location options that can support the Winter Farmers’ Market’s continued growth.
Open 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, at the Robert H. Gibson River Garden, 153 Main St., Brattleboro, VT. For more information call 802-869-2141, or email us at email@example.com.
