Farmers Market Returns to Lakeside Inn!
In the fall of 2013, Lakeside Inn became host of the local Farmers Market. It was great fun to have it on-site and we're excited to have it back every Wednesday afternoon from 4:00 - 7:00 pm in 2014. Many of the same vendors will be on-site selling their farm fresh produce in addition to new and exciting vendors. Like most Farmers Markets, ours will also have arts and craft vendors.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the number of known markets in the United States has grown every year. In 2010 there were 6,132 markets. In 2013, there were 8,144 markets! According to the USDA, "Farmers markets allow consumers to have access to locally grown, farm fresh produce, enables farmers the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with their customers, and cultivate consumer loyalty with the farmers who grows the produce. Direct marketing of farm products through farmers markets continues to be an important sales outlet for agricultural producers nationwide."
We are excited to host the market the entire year and look forward to seeing you on Wednesdays!
