"Five Things you Need to Know Today" is a Patch column that provides readers with essential, daily information at a glance.
1. Farmers Market Coming to Stoughton
The Stoughton Farmers Market Committee has been hard at work planning for a single farmers market event in town this fall, with the long term goal of having regularly scheduled farmers markets in 2013.
The preview event is scheduled for Saturday, October 6, 2012 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Trackside Plaza (2 Canton St.).
It's free to the public and will feature vendors selling produce, cheeses, meats, breads, baked goods, and a free sampling of Crescent Ridge milks.
Those who purchase from vendors will receive a giveaway - reusable shopping bags.
In addition to the wide selection of foods, there will also be plenty of family-friendly entertainment - music, a story hour, face painting, balloons, and baby farm animals in diapers to pet.
A weekly farmers market in Stoughton is planned to start this coming June.
Working with the Pioneering Health Communities and We Are U-Knighted groups, the aim of the Stoughton Farmers Market Committee is to be able to make locally grown, fresh fruits and vegetables and other healthy foods more readily available in Stoughton. The hope of having the market at Trackside Plaza is to also boost foot traffic for downtown businesses.
