Georgetown Farmers’ Market opens Wednesday at 16 Mile Brewery

GEORGETOWN – The Georgetown Farmers’ Market, sponsored by the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce, will be open for business this Wednesday, May 20 starting at 3 p.m. at 16 Mile Brewery in Georgetown.

“We’re setting up at new location for the market this year, and we’re so excited about it,” said Chamber Executive Director Karen Duffield. “We have found a fantastic partner in 16 Mile Brewery, and a venue that is sure to attract a greater market of customers to our vendors.”

The vendor list is extensive this year, and the relocation to 16 Mile probably has a lot to do with that, said Georgetown Market Master Christel Folke.

This year there are product commitments from Abbotts at Broad Creek, Chapels Creamery, Evans Farm, Kelley Short Flowers, Little Wagon Produce, LJ’s Fresh Lamb, Maebrook Farms, Mr. BBQ, Nothing Better Donuts, Patty’s, Point House Coffee, Rustic Acres/Rehoboth Dairy, Reid Angus, Stag Run Farm, The Point House Coffee, Tom & Terry’s Market, T.S. Smith & Sons, Yum Yum Sweets, and many more are expected to “drop in.”

Sarah Dickinson, Media and Events Director at 16 Mile has also made sure that social media plays a big part in this season’s advertising strategy for the market.

“Sarah, with 16 Mile owner’s Chad Campbell’s blessing, has really opened a lot of new avenues for us to explore as we look to grow our market and get the word out that we’ve moved and will be better than ever, ” said Ms. Folke.

The increased publicity and the collaborative spirit that has been generated between the Chamber, 16 Mile and the Town of Georgetown is exciting, added Ms. Duffield.

This year, customers can expect to hear local musicians performing during the market , see area chefs demonstrate their culinary talents, and of course, taste the fresh from the farm products the vendors will have on hand … not to mention the opportunity to “bend your elbow” with 16 Mile brew at the bar.

The Georgetown Farmers’ Market will be open on Wednesdays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., running May 20 through Sept. 16 at 413 South Bedford Street in Georgetown.
