A crowd of several hundred people attended the opening day of The Gloucester City Farmers Market on Sunday, May 10.
Kelly Erlink a spokesperson for the Market said,”We had almost 600 people come thru. Not bad for being the first week and being Mother's Day. We had 5 vendors, 10 crafters, music, and fund raiser table. It was a nice day - a little windy but everyone had a great time. The vendors did very well.
This coming Sunday (May 17) the flower people along with one of the Organic Food vendors will be making an appearance. And the vendors that were there this past Sunday as well. The beginning of June our Organic Farmer will be starting and the Corn Man will be starting the beginning of July. We are adding vendors all the time. Kettle Korn, coffee, cheeses and seafood, etc. It will only get better as the season progresses. We will have music every week thanks to Mary Lou Adams and the Cultural Arts Society. Crafters are every second Sunday of the month. Look for our opening day on Channel 19”.
Reusable shopping bags will be on sale at the Market as well.
