Farmer’s Market, Family Campfire Sing-a-long & S’more Party

April 30th, 2012

The Pittsford Business Community Group is, in-part, sponsoring a Farmer’s Market.

We are calling for all potential Farmers, Artisans, Vendors and interested parties to meet at the Town Office, on Monday evening, April 30th, 6:00p.m.  Or, if you can’t attend in the evening, please come on the following Tuesday morning, May 1st, 8:30a.m.

A Farmer’s Market is a State regulated “business”, and must have a governing body of at least 3 people. Also, a list of participating vendors is required before we can file as an Incorporated, Non-profit business, and then file for a Tax Identification Number.

Site details and Liability Insurance coverage are being worked out – but, WE Need You!

Yearly membership fees, ($15), pay for the market’s insurance.

Vendor fees,  average $10-15, determined by the Board), pays for the market’s operating fees.

We’re planning on market day being Wednesdays (the least amount of competition) starting in June, for 12-15 weeks.

Remember- if you didn’t grow it, bake it, or Hand Make It – Don’t bring it to Market!

You may contact Kelley Lyon at 483-2218, or vtmusictherapy@comcast.net.
