The Edgewater Farmers Market has opened. Our start date was April 12, 2018. The Market is located on Park Avenue in the empty lot next to the Police Station. The City of Edgewater is very excited to have a Market that will improve the available food/nutrition in the area and to promote downtown Edgewater with shopping and fun. The Market will be on Thursdays from 4 to 8 PM. Our plan is to be community based, using local farms and vendors. We plan to have several farms, bakers, seafood, meat, poultry, honey and more. We plan to include Nursery’s and flower enthusiasts as well. Other retail vendors are encouraged to apply. We are looking to have families as part of our customer base. We will be having face painting, clowns, and other entertaining activities for children. We will have a charity/social service and service organization table as well. Once a month we plan to have an animal rescue/ adoption guest vendor. Music and socializing will be part of our Market with some areas available to eat and socialize. We have a beer and wine vendor. No Name Saloon provides adult beverages. We are promoting the Market via Facebook, Twitter, and our WEBSITE Friday March 16, 2018, we made the front page of the New Smyrna Beach-Edgewater-Oak Hill Hometown News. Vendors should arrive to set for a 4 pm open. We will be expecting set up from 2PM to 4PM with vendors ready for customers at 4 PM. Vendors should not breakdown there set up until 8 PM.
We are members of the Farmers Market Coalition. We will accept cash, checks and credit cards for payment. We will provide information, application, a contract, and other information upon request. Feel free to contact me if you have questions. Feel free to go by the site to look. I would be happy to meet with vendors at the site.
This should be a great benefit to Edgewater and its residents.
Hope you will join us.
