Two Great Markets in a Row

This past weekend was yet another fantastic market. The weather stayed beautiful and I think graduation and Kid's Day brought out some more people to the market. Last Saturday was also the opening weekend of the Art Mart at the Firehouse Gallery. All things combined to create an all around great experience for our vendors and customers. I wanted to thank all of the people that have been stopping by the Market Managers tent to express their interest in helping the Market grow. We are compiling everyones name and contact information and we will be in touch. We all believe that the market could be huge and we need to get a grassroots movement together to explore all our possibilities. The desire is there both from the Market membership and our customers we just need to point everyone in the right direction. Thanks again.

Manager's First Market

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for a great first market. The weather was beautiful and it was inspiring to see all of the markets valued patrons come out to welcome us back to City Hall Park. I wanted to thank everyone for making my first market such a success. I look forward to working with everyone to make this the greatest year for the market. We have big plans for the BFM including bringing in 10 new vendors this year, working with local musicians to showcase their talents at the market and working with the city to discuss the growth of the market. I hope that anyone interested in joining the market, helping the market or discussing the market will stop by and see me some Saturday I'm always willing to hear good ideas. Thanks again. Chris Wagner

Successful First Market!

The BFM had a very successful first market! It was so nice to see all of our vendors back again - not to mention all of our committed customers! There were so many fantastic products available, from rhubarb to handbags to bedding plants and asparagus! We look forward to many more weeks of seasonal produce, fruit, maple, and crafts. Visit us weekly at the Burlington Farmers' Market in City Hall Park in Downtown Burlington every Satuday until October 25th from 8:30 am to 2:00 pm.
