Thursday, August 29 from 2 until 6:30 will be the final market day of the 2013 season for the Medfield Farmers’ Market hosted each week by the First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church on North St. The church expects to open its fourth season again in May. 2014.
The steering committee, chaired by Eve Potts, thanks all the local 2013 vendors for making this season such a success. Wards Berry Farm of Sharon and Langwater Farm of Easton faithfully supplied weekly customers with the freshest vegetables and fruits as well as some homemade pastries. Both farms will continue to sell their produce throughout the year at their on-site farm stands; information can be found on their websites and Facebook pages. Jordan Brothers Seafood, a popular new vendor in 2013, was an enthusiastic supplier of the daily “fresh catch” from the sea. Garden Farms of Bellingham pleased everyone by offering homemade preserves, mustards, relishes and grilling sauces with and without spices. The complete list of vendors included the regular appearance of Bark Back Bakery, with gluten free treats for the canine friend of the family and Wild Daisy Soaps of Walpole whose fresh soaps, lotions and other products contain only natural, organic, non-toxic ingredients.. Visit all of them on Facebook until their return next year.
A thank you is also in order to the many Medfield and area residents who became regular or periodic customers throughout the season. Thanks and please mark your calendars for Thursdays next summer.
The market committee appreciates the support from the Medfield Garden Club and Heifer International who accepted the seasonal invitation extended to local non-profit organizations to help customers learn where Medfield residents volunteer their time. Perhaps many more will participate next year.
The market would not have been a success without these vendors, customers and non-profit groups but it never would have had their support without the press coverage given by the Medfield Press, Hometown Weekly, Medfield Patch and Medfield.TV. Their help was essential . The market also opened and closed smoothly on Thursdays with the willing hands of many volunteer church members. They are too numerous to mention without omissions so thanks to all who were involved and know you are the silent angels.
See you all next May through August and thanks again.
