In conjunction with a new 3-year agreement from the Townshend Select Board for use of the town common, the Townshend Common Farmer's Market is accepting vendor applications for the third season of this weekly farmers market.
Are you an area farmer interested in bringing local vegetables, fruits, meats, eggs, cheese, syrup, honey or any other local food to market? Do you create food items using raw materials sourced from local farmers? If so, please consider being a part of Townshend Common Farmers' Market held Thursday afternoons on the Town Common from 3:30-6:30 beginning June 3.
This market serves West River Valley residents and visitors traveling up and down the valley. Our mission is to support area farmers, increase access to local food and support a sustainable local economy.
Post Oil Solutions, a group based in Southeast Vermont seeking to foster cooperative, sustainable communities, sponsors the Townshend Common Farmers' Market. POS is also the sponsor of the Winter Farmers' Market in Brattleboro, which just completed its fourth and most successful season.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2010 market season. Please call Sherry at 869-2141 for more information or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are also available at www.postoilsolutions.org/TownshendMarket.html.
