Cabot Farmer's Market set to open in May

CABOT, Ark. (CCB) - The Cabot Farmers’ Market, in conjunction with Cabot City Beautiful, Inc. (CCB), is looking for local vendors.  This will be our seventh year and it already promises to be an even bigger market.  With the current economic atmosphere, many people are turning towards backyard gardens.  Many people can use this venue to supplement their income from selling at a market.  “A farmers market contributes to the social and economic welfare of a town & helps produce a strong sense of community identity together.” said Matt Webber, co-market manager.  The farmer’s market will stand as a common ground were people can interact with local farmers & fellow residents of the community, as well as a local source of fresh produce.

“We had a fairly successful first year, great second year, a fantastic third & our fourth year was simply amazing!  In 2012 & 2013, we nearly doubled our number of vendors!”  Shoppers & Vendors are looking forward to a bigger 2014 market this coming year. Many growers, crafters, and artisans, right here in our area, have already begun to contact us.  They want to be a part of this great opportunity, in order to showcase & sell their products!” Webber stated.  "We continue our recruitment of local musicians to entertain at the Market each Saturday.  Any individual or group (vocal and/or instrumental), who might be interested in performing at the Market, should give us a call or email us & we can add them to the showcase schedule."

The Cabot Farmers’ Market will be in a NEW LOCATION for 2014!!  We will have a new home at 1122 2nd Street, which is Re:New Community Church’s parking lot (formerly the Bancroft Building).  This NEW LOCATION provides ROOM TO GROW, great visibility & allows farmers & vendors to sell right off the back of their trucks, just like the ‘days of yester-year’. “We are working to integrate many new ideas and giveaways into this year’s market.” said Webber.  We want an atmosphere that is friendly & inviting.”  Anyone interested in participating should contact the Market at 501-920-2122 or cabotbeautiful@yahoo.com .

The starting date for the 2014 Market Season will be Saturday, May 3rd.  The Market will be open every Saturday through October 4th, from 8:00 a.m. ‘til 12:00 p.m.
