Market Report- May 21st, Opening Day

Friday, May 20th, 2016 | George Sackett | market-report,Uncategorized

Come join us tomorrow as we open the Wildwood Farmers Market for the 2016 season. Market hours are 8:30am-12:30pm. We are located at 221 Plaza Drive in the Wildwood Town Center.

Each week we invite the community to join us as we welcome a variety of vendors that bring us a great selection of local homegrown, handmade and homemade products. Fresh, local, seasonal produce, meats, eggs, hot sauce, honey, jams and jellies, flowers, plants, herbs and more. Along with all of the local, fresh food items, we have crafters and artisans each week.

Live music and the “Little Sprouts” kids market tent round out the market each week. This year we are fortunate to have the Wildwood Green Arts folks join us for special hands on activities and demonstrations. Please continue to check our website and Facebook page for special events throughout the season.

Music on May 21st, 9am-12pm- “Blue Strings Bluegrass

This market season, we are trying to schedule a variety of meat vendors each week. We hope to have a steady supply of sustainable, local, meats cuts for the customers each week. Please look for a schedule very soon. The market will have locally raised beef, pork, chicken and alpaca as well as an occasional visit from our friends at Wild Alaska Salmon and Seafood. Get to know the folks that raise the animals and find out how they do it. Know your farmer, know your food.
