It has been a busy week for the Oakley Farmers Market steering committee, and we have a bunch of news to share. First off, the Vendor Application deadline has been extended! You may have thought you were too late, but don’t worry, you now have until April 30th to get your vendor application in to us. Don’t delay! Download your vendor application on our forms page.
The Oakley Farmers Market has approved a mission statement:
To provide an opportunity for all Oakley neighbors, regardless of
differences in income, race or social status, to have access to fresh,
healthy, locally produced foods. A central, public space for neighbors
to gather and support their farmers, artisans, and crafters enhances
community self sufficiency and offers a practical resolution to issues
of food insecurity. Addressing these large issues at the local level
builds strong community ties, revives our local economy, and restores
invaluable connections to our neighborhood, our farmers and farmland,
and each other.
Now who can’t get behind that? Remember to tell your friends and neighbors, our soft opening is May 24th, followed by the Grand Opening on May 31st!
You’ll soon be seeing our flyers around town and the neighborhood. Interested in supporting the market, or showing that your business supports the market? Become a market sponsor! Fill out our sponsorship form to show how much the success of this market means to you. Thank you for your support!
Next committee meeting is Thursday the 19th, 6 PM, at Oakley United Methodist Church, 607 Fairview Rd.
