Every year the Stonington Farmers Market grants some money from vendor dues to local community projects we find worthy of attention. Building community ties and strengthening future generations of farmers is key to our mission.
One such group on the island that received financial support from the Stonington Farmers Market is the Deer Isle-Stonington Elementary School Garden Club. The kids took a field trip to explore our market with their teachers. Our vendors enjoyed interacting with the children and vice versa. We received this thank you note from the avid gardeners this week.
If anyone has photos of the field trip kids having a good time please send them to webmaster Katy (firstname.lastname@example.org) for upload to our website.
