Westover Farmers Market relies heavily on volunteers to make its weekly operations smooth and successful. If you can spare a few hours on Sunday mornings, please lend a hand. A volunteer orientation meeting will take place tomorrow (Wednesday, May 1), at 7 p.m. in the Westover Library meeting room. Details here.
Yes, spring has sprung and greens are starting to show up at the market. Tomorrow is the last “winter” market, from 9 a.m. to 1 pm. Beginning next Sunday, May 5, we’ll transition to the summer market. What does that mean? More vendors. New hours (8-12). And a new configuration. As with last summer, N. McKinley Street will close except for traffic filtering into the Westover parking lot (for shoppers at local stores). The market will occupy part of the street, as well as the plaza in front of the library. More announcements about the summer market to follow next week. In the meantime, come celebrate the end of winter tomorrow from 9 – 1 pm.

A selection of jerky, trail sticks and summer sausage is also available. Customers will often find eggs and seasonal specialty items such as grass-range chicken and turkey available. Please come give Cibola Farms a warm Westover welcome this Sunday morning!
