Season Over for Rockville Farmers Market, Plans Already Underway for an Even Bigger Market Next Year
The harvest was bountiful and the second, recently-ended season of the Rockville Farmers Market was a great success, according to Lisa Moody, President of the Rockville Downtown Association (RDA), the sponsor of the market. Increases were seen in the number of vendors, shoppers and weeks the market was open (May–October). Plans are already in the works for an even larger more diverse market next year. Moody gave special thanks to Dan Waskiewicz, the Market Master and owner of Crystal Blueprint, who oversaw and ran the market for 22 weeks. She also thanked the vendors and shoppers, as well as Peter Olsen, owner of Ladd and Hall Furniture, for allowing the use of the Courthouse Plaza parking lot.
Anyone with suggestions for next year's market, including food products and special vendors they would like to see, is encouraged to call the RDA office at 860-875-7439.
