St. Andrew's Waterfront Farmers Market Re-Opens Tomorrow

Posted: Updated:

Saturday morning wood panels will hidden by tables and wandering feet. As the return of the St. Andrews Waterfront Farmers Market hits historic downtown.

"Tomorrows the day," said Rob Rosner, the Director of the St. Andrews Community Redevelopment Agency.  

Rosner said Saturdays return has drawn load of support from the community.

"We are ecstatic," said Rosner. "People have come out of the wood work to help us get this started again this year.

"We are very excited about having it be as successful as it can be and continuing that because it has such a good effect on St. Andrews."

Local business owners like Diana White and The Farmish Market plan to bring their goods to the farmers market.

"I mean I was kind of confused when I was reading that they weren't going to be there anymore," said White. "So, when I heard they were coming back-- I was thrilled."

White and her brother participated in the market before working with a produce company. Since their family started their own business, now, she can be a part of it herself.

"Well, when we used to work for the Vegetable Bin, the Vegetable Bin was a part of the St. Andrews Market.

"They used to go there every weekend, so it was kind of exciting when we started our own place we'd get to do that as well."

"This past couple years she's been growing her business and she wants to come back and be part of it as her own business," said Rosner.

For The Farmish Market being here in St. Andrews on Saturday mornings means gaining customers throughout the week, and beyond.

"People that come into our market they always rave about how they love going to the farmers market on Saturdays," said White. "So, I think it's just kind of exciting to hear people say they like going to markets 'cause growing up... that's what we loved to do."

The market opens at 8 o'clock Saturday mornings and lasts until 1o'clock. Vendors interested in becoming a part of the market can call 872-7208 or visit historicstandrews.com/markets.
