Farmer’s, Craft Market Looking for Vendors

August 26, 2008

NEW GLOUCESTER – The first Farmer’s and Crafter’s Market will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, at the First Congregational Church in the Lower Village.

With high gas prices and renewed focus on local food and healthy eating, the Farmer’s Market is an effort to build community, support local agriculture and the creative arts and provide a way to have fun and reconnect with neighbors on a fall Saturday morning.

Vendors are being sought for this event. For those who provide their own table and chairs, the display fee is $10 a space. Those who need a table can rent one (or more) from the church for an additional fee of $5. The display area will be approximately 15 x 15 feet. Farmers and crafters must sell only home grown vegetables or homemade crafts.

With ongoing support and interest, it is hoped to launch a regular farmer’s and craft market next summer.

For a copy of the vendor registration form, call or e-mail Christine Babb at 926-3260 or fccng@securespeed.net.

The planning committee for the event includes members of the New Gloucester Congregational Church, the Creative Arts Committee of New Gloucester and the Economic Development Committee of New Gloucester. The Farmer’s Market is being sponsored by the First Congregational Church and proceeds will benefit the church.

Those who would like to stay involved or are interested in this effort are asked to call or e-mail Julie Fralich at 926-3161 or J.Fralich@gmail.com.
