We're already looking forward to the 2021 market
At the holidays, we always look back at what the current year has brought us, and ahead at what the new year promises. If we limit our vision to just the Farmers Market, we can say with complete confidence that the 2020 season was the worst of times and the best of times. It took immense effort from so many to open the market on time, and stay open, and then extend an extra week. But it paid off so spectacularly, with glorious weather, bountiful harvests and healthy shoppers and vendors. Now, in the darkest part of the year, we're looking ahead to next season, which holds so much promise. The biggest news is that we are opening a week early – May 8 – and we will entertain the thought of going beyond our October 30 end date. The Farmington City Council approved the market's new dates at a recent meeting, during which market manager Walt Gajewski summarzied the 2020 season. For more details, click here. In the meantime, have happy holidays as you dream of a warm, sunny market Saturday in downtown Farmington.
