The season’s are turning, and farmers marketeer Joan O’Connor is looking ahead to winter. Yes, she’s scanning the Tilton area horizons for the perfect location for a Winter Farmers’ Market.
After two winter hiatus, following four astoundingly successful seasons on Route 3 in Tilton, in a building generously made available by AutoServ of Tilton, Joan remains persistent in her efforts to find a building. With the market’s following continuing to grow, even while it’s taking a break, Joan has no doubt that the need and energy exists in the community for a strong and vibrant winter market. The market’s Facebook page continues to grow in popularity—up 20 percent in the last year—a clear sign that a community is ready to support the market when it returns.
The perfect market location will have easy access, great visibility from the road, plenty of parking and will be about 12-15,000 square feet, minimally heated. Joan O’Connor has a track record of strong and creative partnerships with local businesses, and the market provides a fine opportunity for a business to step up to fill and important need in the community.
If you or anyone you know may be in a position to offer a location for the market, or if you have ideas of people for Joan to approach, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-496-1718.
In the mean time, Happy Winter to all! Thanks for all you do to support local agriculture and farmers’ markets. We’ll see you soon!
