Shrewsbury – On a beautiful and unseasonably warm afternoon, Nov. 19, Shrewsbury Farmer’s Market teamed up with Shrewsbury Public Schools’ Colonial Fund for the second year by co-sponsoring a Farmer’s Market and Artisans Fair at Sherwood Middle School.
Funds raised will support the Colonial Fund which supports innovation in learning.
“We have a nice steady flow of visitors and people are shopping,” event coordinator Michelle Biscotti said. “This is our second year and people seem to have looked forward to this event and, hopefully, we can keep it growing.”
The Farmer’s Market began last year when Melisa (Missy) Hollenback, approached the Colonial Fund coordinators with the idea of holding a Farmer’s Market & Artisans Fair in November, just before the holidays.
Kathleen Keohane, Colonial Fund coordinator said, “Without Missy and her connections, the event just wouldn’t happen. We were so excited to have many vendors return and to welcome new vendors. We were also excited to provide folks with an opportunity to shop local and fresh in time for Thanksgiving.”
