Bedford Farmers Market Adds Lunch and New Vendors for 2011

Today marked the start the 4th season of the Bedford Farmer's Market. This year features many new vendors (now a total of 26) with additional food choices including cheeses, homemade fudge and bottles of Wine. The Market will be open every Monday through October 17th.

The Market now features lunch from 12:30-2:30pm, while the vendors are open from 1-5:30pm.

The changes made for 2011 seem to be good ones. The addition of lunch helped bring in lots of additional people. In fact the lunch vendor, Great Harvest Bread Company quickly ran out of sandwiches, had to call to get more and promptly sold out again. Last week, flyers about the Farmer's Market were left on cars in nearby corporate parking lots. From my observations, these two changes combined to bring a lot more office workers (many who did not live in Bedford and who were previously unaware of the Farmer's Market).

Wow, lunch was EXPENSIVE, with little variety, and sold out early! Hopefully, they've learned from that first day! Would love to see some competition- i.e., another lunch vendor.

According to the Bedford Farmers' Market Website, Carriage House Cafe is going to be the lunch vendor for July 4, Labor Day - September 5, and Columbus Day - October 10.
