It is with great anticipation that we invite Landmark readers to the opening of the Third Annual Riverside Farmers’ Market on Wednesday, June 29, from 2:30 to 7 p.m.

As a volunteer committee, we surveyed approximately 400 residents in February; the results have been available on the village website since then. Among the significant responses were a desire for a wider variety of products, an interest in products that go from market to table and suggestions to reconsider location.

As the opening of the market approaches, we are optimistic that a new location between the Riverside Township Hall and Riverside Public Library supports the goal of creating a community of shoppers and vendors that complement the existing businesses and provides for programming that takes advantage of the adjacent facilities and park.

It is the intention of this committee to partner with other village initiatives to make the Riverside Farmers Market a great success. See you there!
