A Georgetown Farmers' Market joins the lineup of Delaware markets opening for the 2010 summer season. "It's exciting to see yet another farmers' market opening in Delaware," says Kelli Steele, Marketing Communications Officer for the Delaware Department of Agriculture. "First State residents and visitors alike have proven over and over again that they enjoy local produce; and they look forward to the excitement that the farmers' market season brings. The new market in Georgetown brings to 16, the total of farmers' markets in Delaware! I look forward to a successful season for the participating vendors."
The Georgetown Farmers' Market will operate every Friday starting May 28 thru Sept. 3, from 3PM-6PM on the front property of Sports at the Beach, along Route 9 East. "We knew the success of the market hinged on excellent organization and a great variety of farmers' fresh foods, says Karen Duffield, executive director of he Georgetown Chamber, "but the key was finding the ideal location, and we found it at Sports at the Beach."
The excellent organization component comes in the form of seasoned market master, Pat Coluzzi. "The Chamber was so fortunate that Pat was available and willing to take the lead with our market.," says Duffield. "Pat has proven success, as evidenced by the hugely popular Rehoboth's Farmers' Market, which she also runs."
"I am very excited about starting the new Georgetown Farmers' Market., says Coluzzi. "As market master, I can ensure you that we will have top notch vendors selling local fresh vegetables, fruit, herbs, flowers, bread, baked goods, specialty snacks, meat and seafood. Our location at Sports at Beach will provide shoppers with easy access to the market. You don't want to miss it."
