Longview Farmers Market Slated To Open March 29
The historic Longview Farmers Market plans to open the 2014 season on March 29, contingent on weather.
Additional emails, updates on the website, posts on Facebook, and advertising in the Longview News Journal will keep the public informed on the upcoming opening.
The Wednesday market will continue at the Good Shepherd Institute for Healthy Living on Hawkins Parkway, with the first day on April 2.
New hours for both markets will be 7:30-11:30 a.m. More live entertainment is featured this year.
This is a non-profit and volunteer market, and help is being sought, including sponsors for tables/chairs/umbrellas for a "street cafe" for visitors to enjoy a cup of coffee and a scone, muffin or other treat. Volunteers are needed to help set up once a month. Sponsors are for banners, as these sponsorships pay for liability insurance and facilities.
