NORFOLK — The Norfolk Farmers Market, which started in 2006, will return for a new season on Saturday, June 12, outside of Town Hall on 29 Maple Avenue from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This will be the first time the market returns to a full regular in-person season since the Covid pandemic hit last year.
According to market steering committee member May Jo Tomaselli, the market did try to go virtual via a website, and at one point three in-person markets were held.
“We eventually closed down the season early because we weren’t getting the participation we needed from the vendors and our customers,” Tomaselli said. “This year we decided to cross our fingers and we all said let’s go for it. We’re excited about it and we think it’s going to be great.”
Tomaselli said that the market will follow any state Covid regulations and restrictions.
She said that vendors that have signed up so far include Undermountain Weavers,
Rolling Rock Farm, Lost Ruby Farm, Broadfield Farm, The Wooden Peg, and Scarlet Rose Soaps.
“We appreciate the people in town who have all supported it over the years,” Tomaselli said. “But we are looking for volunteers. That is going to be an essential part of the market because our committee is starting to age out.”
Vendors interested in participating can go to norfolkfarmersmarket.org for applications to sign up for the market.
