Riverside Farmers Market’s 2015 season begins Wednesday, June 3, when we return to our spot next to the Riverside Public Library. 

The Riverside Farmers’ Market runs every Wednesday from 2:30 to 7 p.m. through Oct. 14. We’re happy to welcome back many of our favorite farmers and other vendors, as well as to introduce newcomers who will increase the variety of preserves, eggs, meats, soaps, sweets, breads, and — of course — locally grown fruits and vegetables. 

We are grateful for our continuing partnership with the library, which is planning a full calendar of programs and entertainment in conjunction with the market. 

Thank you also to the village of Riverside and especially the Parks and Recreation Department for behind-the-scenes work with permits and other administrative tasks that make the market run. 

Finally, we thank the vendors and shoppers who made our second Winter Market a success. To find out more about each week’s offerings, like us on Facebook (facebook.com/Riverside.Farmers.Mkt) or check out our blog, https://justeatlocal.wordpress.com. 

We welcome new volunteers! Please e-mail us at riverside-farmers-market@googlegroups.com to get involved. 

We have thoroughly enjoyed watching the market develop over the years into a neighborhood gathering spot full of energy and a sense of community, and we are excited for the new season. Happy summer!
