FRESHFARM MVT Market Scores Positive Mid-Season Marks
Friday August 3, 2018
Last weekend marked the halfway point of the 2018 FRESHFARM MVT Market season. And yet despite the rough early season weather, the market continues to demonstrate strong growth and positive trends. Both sales and customer counts through June have increased compared to 2017, and two vendors have reported sales that are 30% higher each in July compared to last year!
Second half of the market season kicks off Saturday, August 4 with Ottoman Taverna partnering with 5th Street Ace Hardware to grill up samples of its delicious chicken kebabs from 10-11:30am. The market will also feature the usual line-up of the freshest items from the following vendors:
