WFM Raffle – Spooky Edition

The final Westover Farmers Market raffle of the season will take place this Sunday, October 30.  As usual, purchase at least $5 in goods at any booth and receive a raffle ticket. Write your name and number on the ticket and deposit it in the bin at the WFM tent. Drawings will be held every 30 minutes.

But wait! Kids who come dressed in Halloween attire will get extra tickets and there will be a few (scarily good?) prizes for best costumes. A ghoulish time for all – see you at the market.

Cherries and berries

We’re in the early summer season when soft fruits appear in the market. The bountiful strawberry crop of the past several weeks is ending. But blackberries, raspberries, cherries and other berries are taking their place in the farmers’ stands. And there is the possibility of a few early peaches! Recommend you visit the Westover Farmers Market early Sunday to have the best selection of seasonal fruits.

WFM Closed for Easter

The Westover Farmers Market will not take place on Sunday, March 27. We wish all a very happy Easter. And for those looking for some entertainment, on Saturday March 26 the annual Westover Easter Egg Hunt and associated festivities will take place behind the Reed School at 10:30 am. Guaranteed fun for the whole family. See you back at the market next on April 3.
