The market, which first opened in 2011, operates next to the park’s tennis courts and strives to unify the community by offering a welcoming gathering spot, healthy food and product choices, and information on retail products and services available in the Bartlett Station area.
Organizers say they welcome volunteers, who can earn service hours through schools and Scouting activities. Non-profit organizations are invited to sign up for a Saturday, have an information booth and and act as market hosts. To volunteer or to receive more information, email email@example.com.
Individual and business sponsors are also welcome to participate. See details on the sponsors tab at the market’s website at BartlettStationFarmersMarket.org.
