HADDON HEIGHTS NEWS: Wanted Fresh Fruits and Vegetables!
Saturday, March 23, 2013
It is March and the temperature is around freezing cold! I don’t know about you but I am desperately missing the Farmer’s Markets that we are lucky enough to have here in Camden County right about now! Not because I’m trying to promote our Market here in town, but because I really miss the seasonal produce and goods that the Markets offer. I miss the live music, and the vendors who support the markets week after week. I miss my kids running up and down with popcorn and strawberries in their hands at our Market, feeling safe in a place that has become a 2nd home to them and many others on Sunday mornings. Since the local Markets began closing for the winter I guess didn’t realize how much we would miss them. It’s normal to take for granted that things will always be there until they are gone. Anyway…
That being said I am happy to announce that our Haddon Heights Farmers Market Administration is anxiously preparing for season 3 of our Market to re-open in the heart of town on Station and Atlantic Ave. The HHFM will again be every Sunday starting May 5th 2013. (10 am-1 pm)
Last years Market was a great success with the community and all those involved, and we are determined to make it even better in 2013. We truly feel that our Market is something that is all too important not to continue as it embodies such a sense of community. During the off-season HHFM Administration has been meeting with surrounding Market Director’s in Camden County with the goal in mind that working together can make all local markets more consistent and successful. The HHFM will continue be comprised of local farmers, artisans, and local businesses that participate in the weekly event. Please look for our website to launch, which will be linked to the town website, and our facebook page (Handle-Haddon Heights Farmers Market) so you can befriend us there. This market is already becoming a new tradition and continued support is what it needs to thrive so spread the word. We look forward to seeing you this Spring!
