The Upper Twp. Farmers Market (UTFM) Steering Committee will hold a development / planning meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015, 7 pm, at the Upper Twp. Sr. Wellness Center on Stagecoach Rd., Palermo.
The purpose of the meeting will be to continue the conversation with Township residents on establishing a Farmers Market for the community. The Wellness Center is located at 1369 Stagecoach Rd., Ocean View, NJ 08230.
To sign-up for the meeting, please RSVP using this Eventbrite link > http://tinyurl.com/n2o9x66
Township residents, Becky Holden and Kiesha Bond are spearheading this meeting as a follow-on to the informational meeting, held Jan. 20, that began the dialogue about various key elements of a local Farmers Market. Topics at that meeting included suggestions for the day of the week, various locations and criteria for produce vendors and crafters.
Upper Twp. Green Team member Ralph Cooper is serving on the UTFM Steering Committee. Cooper noted that the partnership with the two groups has enabled shared services such as website and social media as well as collaboration on source material through Sustainable Jersey and individual Green Teams in communities of similar size and rural make up as the Township of Upper. In addition, the Green Team is helping the Steering Committee gather best practices and documentation examples.
Earlier this month the Upper Twp. Business Association (UTBA) was briefed on the effort to bring a Farmers Market to Upper Township. The UTBA passed a resolution fully endorsing the Farmers Market concept.
At the group’s Jan. 20th meeting Holden noted that she has attended several meetings with the organizers of the Brigantine Farmers Market. In addition, Cooper reported on discussions with the Ocean City Farmers Market manager. Both cited how cooperative and sharing everyone has been in helping our community get things started.
The Feb.17th meeting will include updates on Steering Committee activities, brainstorming action plan topics and hopefully designating volunteers with special interests in chairing sub-committees.
In the coming weeks, please email any questions, comments or suggestions to Becky Holden at UpperTwpFarmersMarket@yahoo.com
