Tuesday, September 25th is Vendor Appreciation Day at the Brownstown Farmers Market. The second year of the Brownstown Farmers Market has been a huge success and that is due to the devotion of the farmers market’s vendors.
The vendors are being celebrated for their support throughout the market season. Each vendor will receive lunch and a thank you certificate.
Some of the highlights of the 2012 Brownstown Farmers Market were Kids Day at the Market which included a petting zoo by A & A Farms and craft project tent sponsored by Home Depot. Over 200 children visited the Market. Another big hit at the Market was Public Safety Day which included tours of United States Border Patrol vehicles, Brownstown Township Fire Trucks and the Downriver Swat Tank.
This Tuesday, September 25th is the last day of the Brownstown Farmers Market. The 26 week season had its up and downs mostly weather related. There were plenty of days with 95+ degree temperatures and at least one torrential downpour that closed the Market for the day in August.
Sue Trussell, Brownstown Assistant DDA Director said, “We are thankful for our loyal vendors that had such great products to offer our customers and we look forward to another successful year in 2013. And we are also very appreciative of our loyal customers that came back to the Market every week.”
