Westfield Farmers’ Market To Commence on June 24
WESTFIELD — The Westfield Farmers Market, sponsored by the Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce, will open on Thursday, June 24.
The market will be set up at the entrance to the South Avenue Train Station.
Local New Jersey farmers will bring their Jersey products to sell in Westfield every Thursday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., June 24 through October 28.
The Farmers’ Market is a combination of town and country, afford
ing the farmers an opportunity to sell their products, and offering local residents the availability of fresh “just picked produce,” said Chamber Executive Director Debbie Schmidt.
The market also attracts customers to the downtown shopping district, an important goal for the Westfield Area Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Westfield Corporation which operates the town’s special improvement district.
“The Westfield Market is hoping to have five or six farmers participate every Thursday this summer. The Farmers’ Market attracts attention to the downtown area, benefiting all our local businesses, and also provides the community with a special family event where they can shop for wonderful fresh, high quality produce,” Ms. Schmidt said.
SPECIAL VISITOR…Former Mayor Bud C. Boothe recently visited Maureen Ferraro’s third-grade class at Jefferson Elementary School to help the students learn more about the history of their Westfield community. Mr. Boothe, pictured with students from the class, is a presenter from the Westfield Historical Society. The students were involved in an active discussion of Westfield’s past. The class also will be visiting the Miller Cory House Museum to enrich their history lesson and augment their new appreciation of Westfield. TALKING POLITICS…Fanwood Mayor Maryanne Connelly enjoys an infor
