The 2014 Riverside Farmers Market may have ended for the summer, but we are excited that Winter Market is right around the corner. Some of your favorite vendors will be back Nov. 5, from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. inside the Riverside train station. After that, the Winter Market runs the first Wednesday of the month in December, February, March, April and May.

The Riverside Farmers Market Committee is grateful for the support we get from the village and the Parks and Recreation Department, including making space available and processing vendor applications. The Riverside Public Library continues to be a great partner with weekly programs tied to the market.

Thank you to the Riverside Junior Woman’s Club, which donated the money for us to purchase carts for shoppers to use. And thank you to the musicians, especially Paul Halvey, who donated their time and talent that enhanced the festive air of the market.

We encourage you to visit our Facebook page or blog to link to our survey. We value the feedback. Based on past suggestions, we added more prepared food vendors and coffee, for instance. And, as always, we welcome new volunteers. Send us a message at and find out how you can help.

See you at the Winter Market.
