To the Adirondack Journal:
The Chestertown Farmers Market has been a huge success and we thank all the vendors and customers who have helped make this happen.
However, five of our signs advertising the market have been stolen over the past two weeks — two around Loon Lake and THREE around Brant Lake.
We find this very discouraging as we are a not-for-profit group and many volunteers have donated their time and energy to make this a success and bring people into downtown Chestertown.
These likable “tomato” signs cost us $10 a piece and we would be glad to sell you one if you'd like a souvenir — as we can’t imagine anyone local not wanting to help us promote the area — but please stop stealing them as it costs us valuable time and money to replace them each week.
Thank you in advance and we hope to see you at the Market!
Cindy Mead, President
Chestertown Farmers Market
