Bedford Farmers' Market Opens

The Bedford Farmers' Market opened this past Monday. I stopped by several times during the afternoon. Each time there was a good amount of foot traffic to most of the booths. I think this will be a success. Seemed to be plenty of parking.

While the Bedford Farmers' Market has been promoted in town to residents, it appears to have not yet been promoted directly to many of the people who work in Bedford. In fact, I spoke to two office workers just one block away who were on a break. They had no idea about the Farmers' Market. They both thought it was a great idea and in fact, one of them immediately headed right to the Market. Perhaps some flyers could be distributed to some of the local businesses. Since the Market stays open until 6:30pm, I think some of the local workers will stop by after work before heading home.
