Food Truck Rally a huge success
The food truck rally in support of the market, held on July 12th, was a huge success with a very large number of people enjoying the good food, the pleasant day, the various musicians and the general ambience of fun. In all we had 11 food vendors and many hundreds of attendees. Our thanks to all those who participated and a special thanks to those people who help organize and run the rally.
Seeking additional vendors
The market already has an excellent array of quality local vendors, but there are a couple of additional areas we would like to cover. We are currently (2016-04-18) looking for vendors in the following areas:
- Prepared food
- Quality artisans
- Small scale
- Primary producers
Call for volunteers
The market is organized by volunteers and we're looking for additional people who think the market is a good idea and would be willing to support it with a bit of their time. In particular we are looking for people who are able to help with setup and teardown on market days. Even if you can participate one day a month that would make a huge difference. Please contact us by email at email@example.com if you are interested in participating in this exciting adventure.
