Parades, Music, Fun, Food, and a Great Raffle!
Plan to spend a bit of extra time at the market this week as you will want to listen to Bart Sides and his band, Dr. B and the Homemade Band. They will play from 5:00 until 7:00 and you are going to love them. So, stop by and enjoy the afternoon, grab a cup of coffee, linger with your friends and neighbors (or start your Christmas shopping – ideas to follow). Please remember that tips are always appreciated for all our performers.
Our 250th Anniversary Parade is this Sunday at 1:00. Our Agricultural Commission is representing the farmers’ market with a fleet in the parade with the theme, “Growing the Westminster Farmers’ Market”. That is not a mistake, fleet, not float! There will be three floats and seven tractors and farm equipment! And if that is not enough fun, we will be distributing free raffle tickets with a chance at a farmers’ market food baskets and items worth more than $200! (Note that the actual ticket incorrectly states $50) So make sure you ask for a raffle ticket when you see the floats go by. We will put a drop-off box at the farmers’ market where you can leave your entry! The drawing will be on October 9th

This Seattle area couple visited visted our Westminster MA farmers market three weeks ago. I stumbled upon their local eating blog while doing a websearch of our market.
They wrote a very nice review, even though their locavore area is almost 3000 miles away!
Thanks Patricia and John! I hope we have better weather the next time you visit us.
