Are you ready for the 2015 Salisbury Farmers Market season?

I know I am, because great things are in store for this year. One of the newest additions is that the Salisbury Farmers Market has a new Market Manager, Eric Bowen. Eric has a great local foods background and his knowledge will create a great market atmosphere, I am also hoping for some exciting events to be held at the market this year.

As always, there are a few things to do before opening the market and one of the tasks is to have the Annual Meeting. The Farmer’s Market Annual Meeting will be held Monday, Jan. 26 at 6 p.m. at the Rowan County Cooperative Extension office, 2727 Old Concord Road.. If you have ever wanted to sell at the market, be on the board, or help provide some fresh ideas, this is the perfect time to volunteer, join, or express your opinions.

The Salisbury Farmers Market will be taking new vendor applications at the annual meeting as well as providing the new rules and market hours.

There are a few changes to the 2015 season, one being that the Wednesday market days will begin May 27 and end on Aug. 26 to reflect the peak growing season. Opening day for the market will be Saturday, April 25 from 8 a.m. to noon. The market will also stay at its current location, 115 S. Jackson St., for the 2015 market season.

The Salisbury Farmers Market is always looking for volunteers, new vendors or possible board members. So if you have a great new craft, delicious creation, cheese, great produce or love to be a helping hand, be sure to attend the 2015 Salisbury Farmer’s Market Annual Meeting and sign up to be a vendor.

If you would like to learn more about becoming a vendor, joining the Farmer’s Market Board or providing some great ideas, contact your local Cooperative Extension agent, Danelle Cutting, at 704-216-8970 or visit the Salisbury Farmers’ Market website at http://www.salisburyfarmersmarket.com/.
