I am pleased to announce the start of the Summer Farmers' Market on Saturday, June 4th!
Join us in the Mural Parking Lot (81 West Main Street, Wilmington) from 8:30 am - Noon for the first market of the season. The Market begins its weekly schedule from June through October - so we will be there every Saturday morning AND every Wednesday afternoon beginning Wednesday, June 8th. In order to accommodate to the "after work" crowd, our NEW Wednesday hours are now 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm.
We have a great vendor group this year with both new and returning producers, who will provide you with a diverse variety of the freshest, tastiest local products and unique artisan goods throughout the season.
Our 2011 vendors include:
THE BREAD LADY (NEW) - WE WELCOME EBT!
DUTCH CREEK ARTS
THE FARMER'S WIFE
HENSON FAMILY FARM
(NEW) - WE WELCOME EBT!
PLUM BROKE FARM
WALNUT RIDGE ACRES
I am excited to announce several new developments for the 2011 Summer Farmers' Market, especially the launch of our new Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) program and our fun-filled events schedule.
Beginning on June 4th, the Farmers' Market will now accept SNAP food assistance benefits (aka food stamps) like cash for applicable food items from authorized vendors. This exciting development makes the Farmers' Market a more accessible and affordable source of fresh, local, nutritious food for all community members.
To find out more about the EBT program, please call Dessie at 937-382-6661 ext 488, check out our "EBT" page, or download our EBT brochure HERE.
The 2011 summer season is going to be full of fun & FREE events that the whole family will enjoy.
