Hello DFM Shoppers,
Happy New Year! We are excited to start a new year and new season at DFM. For the first time in 13 years, the winter farmers market has the most vendors ever –– 22 in total! Included in that number are four new vendors to DFM: Nonni’s Gourmet Kitchen, Earthly Dressings, Festin Bakery, and Hodges Family Farm.
If you’re new to DFM, our winter market is a little different than our regular full season. The winter market runs for three months and is every other Saturday from January 9 – March 20. Same time 9am – Noon. Dates for every winter market are below in the newsletter and posted on our social media and website.
As we continue to operate during the pandemic all safety and health protocols are in place as last year (please see our guidelines below). Since the winter market is slightly smaller, all vendors will be located in the Jackson Street Parking Lot with one entrance at the top of the lot (behind Summit Coffee) and two exists (one next to the entrance and the other at the bottom of the parking lot).
As much as we’re excited for the winter market to start, we are also excited for our full season to start in April, where we have 35 vendors with an additional five new vendors (total of nine new vendors for 2021). We appreciate everyone that has supported DFM this past year and look forward to an exciting new year at the market.
