Thank you for a wonderful season in 2014

I love to finish the market season with the special indoor Holiday markets!

All of that great energy generated by the good spirit of farmers' market shoppers, farmers, and artists and artisans is contained for a few hours.  Being inside with all of you I get to hear people say things like "Hello neighbor!", "Happy Holidays", and "oooh GARLIC!"; I get to hear and see all of the vendors relaxing and exchanging the kind of conversations that you can only have at the end of a long season; and best of all there is laughing and caring among people that have either stumbled across the market for the first time or have counted down the days between each market.

We were also so lucky to have the sweet and moody voice of Molly Pinto Madigan at our December 22nd market setting the tone.

This sense of community and good spirit that I get from the indoor markets gets me excited to dive into my 7th season of the Beverly Farmers' Market!  Here is what I am looking for and looking forward to in the next couple of months:

  • a new website
  • building the farrmers' market team (Yes, you do get a free t-shirt!) ....please see our volunteer opportunities tab above for information
  • filling our music and events calendar
  • finding the best farmers, artisans, and artists to bring products we would love to see at the market this year (artisan bread, poultry, prepared foods, beverages
That is just the beginning of things to come for the Beverly Farmers' Market in 2015.  Thank you all for making our sixth season a huge success!  I am looking forward to an even better seventh season!
