Mid-Cape Farmers' Market Seeking Seasonal & Weekly Vendors

The 2005 inaugural year was extremely well received by residents and visitors alike.

Hyannis, MA - The Mid-Cape Farmers' Market is seeking seasonal and weekly vendors for the 2006 season. The market will be held 8:00 AM-1:00 PM every Wednesday from June 14 through September 6 on Main Street in downtown Hyannis. Local fruit, vegetable, and herb farmers and producers of farm-based value-added products, such as honey, jam, bread, cheese, baked goods, cut flowers, and the like are invited to apply as a seasonal or visiting vendor.

The 2005 inaugural year of the Mid-Cape Farmers' market was extremely well received by residents and visitors alike. Over the course of the season, weekly traffic built to an average of approximately 500 patrons at its peak. As a testimony to the success of the market, all of the 2005 seasonal vendors have indicated that they plan to return this year.

In 2006, the Mid-Cape Market Advisory Committee is making improvements to ensure even greater foot traffic by moving the location closer to Main Street and extending market hours by one hour to better accommodate working people who want to shop during their lunch break. Hyannis Downtown Business Improvement District has promised to help promote the market and will donate banners and flower planters to bring color to the market location.

The deadline for seasonal vendors to submit an application is May 15, 2006.

Interested parties should contact Karen Lee, the market manager, by calling 508-432-3557 or emailing [email protected]

The Mid-Cape Farmers' Market is a community effort coordinated and governed by an Advisory Committee comprising several local farmers, Edible Cape Cod Magazine, Main Street Hyannis Business Improvement District, Massachusetts and Cape Cod WIC, Southeastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership, The Zammer Hospitality Institute of Cape Cod Community College, and representatives of the community.
