The members of the Farmers’ Market staff want to thank our local friends for the great turnout and excellent sales at the first week of the Tippecanoe Farmers’ Market on Saturday. If you got a chance to come out, thanks a lot!
We estimated more than 400 shoppers visited the Market between 9 and Noon, and our eleven vendors did great business; in fact, a couple of our vendors sold out of products and vowed to bring more products next week! We will be adding add at least one more new vendor next week and, in week 3 on June 30th, we’re expecting our biggest week to date, as we celebrate our Grand Opening with several new vendors joining us, including three more fruit and produce vendors. Thanks for coming out! And, if you didn’t make it this week, be sure to come see us next week!
Sales of the “Friends of the Market” bags were off the charts — thanks to everyone who became a new member – you are really helping support the Market. As we move further into the season, the mix of coupons included in the bags will change, but we guarantee good value for your $25. If you didn’t purchase one this week, you can either buy one from our website via Paypal or purchase one next week at the Market! For more information, visit the website at www.tippecanoefarmersmarket.com and click on “Friends.” And see you next Saturday at the Market!
The Tippecanoe Farmers’ Market Committee and the Downtown Tipp City Partnership would especially like to thank our vendors, including Spring Hill Nurseries, Bowman and Landes, Soy Michelle, The Muddy Truck Patch, EAT for Life Farms, Trophy Nut, Spring Run Farms, and Soul Creations. We’d also like to thank the Monroe Township Trustees, the City of Tipp City, Glaser Softwater, Weiler Welding, Remax Professionals, ERA Comprehensive Real Estate, and Tipp Monroe Community Services.
