Welcome back! Those of us who volunteer at the Market are very excited to see our vendors and our customers again!

Our 2011 season ended on a very sad note with the unexpected loss of one of our anchor vendors, Ross Faris from Your Neighbor’s Garden. Ross was a mentor for me, and I will miss him sending me newsletters from other Markets he visited around the country. And I’ll miss his regular suggestions and advice on improving the Market. I guess that makes me (and the whole BRFM volunteer team) part of his legacy – his mentoring has meant that we are always looking for new ways to make the Market better serve its customers and its vendors.

We have several new vendors this year – some to fill the void left by Your Neighbor’s Garden and some to help round out our product offering. We’ll look forward to your feedback as the season rolls out.
