Romney Farmer's Market
Well the farmer's market season has wrapped up for the year. We would like to Thank all of our customers that visited us at the market this year! We met a lot of nice people at the market. Lots of folks are indeed getting into the fresh and local spirit with their fresh food purchases. Unfortunately, the market is still not very well publicized although there was one article in the Hampshire Review about mid way through the season. Ruth did get her picture taken at the market which was printed in the Cumberland Times. Just as a reminder, the Romney Farmers Market is held Saturday AM from 9 AM until 12 Noon on Main Street (Route 50) in the Bank of Romney Community Center parking lot. Its right across the street from the Sheetz store. There are always a few vendors, and at the peak as many as 6-8 vendors, at the market. The market season runs from about Memorial Day until mid October. The market was really well attended around mid July when some vendors had local corn. That seems to really bring the market traffic out. We had plenty of tomatoes then, including Brandywine heirloom tomatoes. Fresh tomatoes are another must have item for most people attending the market and we sold out most times. I've included a few photos of our market stand for you to see.
