NORWICH – The return of wintry weather has always brought with it a host of logistical problems when it comes to holding outdoor events, but this year customers and vendors alike have more reason than ever to keep selling and keep buying through the winter. This is no truer than in the case of vendors – such as the Norwich Farmers' Market – who rely on drive-by traffic to increase sales.
“We really wanted to be out in the park until the day before Thanksgiving, but the weather was just too difficult this year,” said Sandy Pierce, a long-time member and advocate of the local Norwich Market.
The Norwich Farmers’ Market, a seasonal assemblage of local food, wares and craft vendors that typically organizes in East Park during the summer months, will now be located in and around the lobby of Follett Hall, the Morrisville State College Norwich campus located at 20 Conkey Ave.
From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesdays until January 2014, area shoppers can continue to frequent their favorite Farmers' Market vendors without having to brave the elements of inclement weather, which will come as a warm welcome to all who've made the local market a success in the past.
