News from market planning committee member Jackie Bonomo:
After the November 5 Open House, our Lemont Farmers Market planning group met to talk about the lower-than-hoped-for turnout of vendors. We thought that the day and time – competing with other Saturday markets -was the problem so we have tentatively changed the Lemont Farmers Market day to Wednesday afternoon into evening to allow 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. workers time to shop after work.
We hope that day would be convenient for more vendors, since Wednesday competes with no other local markets.
Producer-Only Farmers and Vendors are invited to apply and ask questions about the newly forming Wednesday afternoon Lemont Farmers Market at an Open House on Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011 at 7:30 p.m. at the Spring Creek Presbyterian Church community room (upstairs) 151 Mary St. (kitty corner from the Lemont Post Office) in Lemont, PA.
