There’s new developments coming to the Sara Hardy Downtown Farmers Market this year, so who better than Market Manager Tricia Phelps to share the whys and wherefores behind the changes? Thanks to Tricia and the Farmers Market for the photos!
The beginning of the Outdoor Farmers Market season reminds us that summer is finally on its way. It’s a beautiful image of the community coming back to life after a long, cold winter.
This year is the 30th year for the market, and it’s been 30 years of growth and change. Early on in its history, the Sara Hardy Farmers Market Committee made the decision that this market be a growers’ market. That may seem like an obvious statement, but actually it’s a strong commitment and has been at the foundation of management decisions for the community market ever since.
After the 2013 season the management staff sat down with market vendors to discuss the good and the bad of the market. We determined the most critical issues and brainstormed solutions together. Here is a list of the major changes that will impact the Sara Hardy Farmers Market this year and quick answers as to Why?
The Village Indoor Market takes every Saturday from 10-2 through the winter in the Mercato at the Village at Grand Traverse Commons. This year they’ll have over 45 vendors lining the halls! Tricia Phelps of Growth by the Season is the market master and shared this great photo feature!
Farmers Markets are one of my favorite community gatherings. You might say I’ve got a resume to prove it and its true. I love what I do and I love being involved in Traverse City’s community markets. Read more
