Anyone who attended even a single Westport Farmers’ Market this year will attest to its ever-growing popularity. On Saturday, Nov 18, the market will open-up shop for the season with a celebration. Full-time vendors, guest vendors, and special food truck vendors, EggZ, Granola Bar, Boxcar and Skinny Pines will join with musicians and merry makers to welcome winter.
“This year we’ve witnessed such palpable dedication from Westport-area shoppers to the local food movement and our local farmers and vendors,” said Lori Cochran-Dougall, market manager. “What better way to recognize that commitment than with a party to celebrate a new season..”
Indeed, the mission of the Westport Farmers’ Market is to provide fresh, local, healthful, and seasonal food to the community in a fun, safe, and healthy community-centered environment that promotes education about local food, local farms, and sustainable, healthy growing practices.
This Saturday, bring your friends, neighbors, family, and tote bags to the WFM Farm-to-Food Truck Party from 10 to 2 at Gilbertie’s Herbs and Garden Center, 7 Sylvan Lane. The event is free and open to the public, and all ages are welcome.
The mission of the Westport Farmers’ Market is to create and maintain a regional hub where real farmers connect with consumers over real food. In facilitating these interactions, the Westport Farmers' Market strives to help food producers and food consumers forge lasting relationships that celebrate education, sustainability, healthy living, and just plain delicious food!
