Updates should be more frequent now

I have been lazy when it comes to updating the blog for the Farmers Market at Attleboro Farms,(and I forgot the password too.) But I promise going forward that I will keep things more current and hopefully more interesting.
Farmers Markets are currently the "Flavor of the Moment" around the USA, which is a good thing when they are in fact serving Farmers, Shoppers and the Community as a whole. Simply put a well run successful farmers market provides a regularly scheduled opportunity for farmers to sell directly to shoppers in a congenial environment. This gives shoppers access to the fresh food, the person(s) who grew it and farmers direct contact with the shoppers.
Of course if you have a Farmers market today without a baker or 2, jams and jelly makers, a smattering of locally made crafts, you will probably not patronize it. Shoppers want variety in their farmers market, a market will be successful if it can achieve a solid balance that pleases everyone,(shoppers, farmers/vendors, the community at large).

Rest assured we are always looking to add variety when it makes sense, Local wines are an example; but recognize that our loyal farmers and artisan producers need to make a living too, so often we say no to someone until the market shoppers are there to support them.

I will try to keep the posts current and add some photos or video too. Ideas welcome and keep telling you friends and neighbors and co-workers to stop by on Sundays to get local with our great group of folks.
