Bexley Farmers' Market Moves to Dawson May 19th!

First Market Day is May 19th - every Thursday from 4:00 to 7:00 pm through October

Join the Bexley Farmers' Market at their new location at Dawson and Main on Thursday, May 19th, from 4:00 to 7:00 pm.  Jaime Moore, Bexley Farmers' Market manager, said "with this move, the market will be more accessible and within walking distance for many more residents, and will provide a better experience for visitors and vendors alike. Expect your favorite vendors to return, such as Dan the Baker, Hirsch Fruit Farm, and Bexley residents, Sweet Thing Gourmet, among others!"  Enjoy fresh-from-farm produce and meat, merchants, food vendors, and live music, kicking off on May 19 and continuing on Thursday nights until the end of October.

A note about the new location: the Farmers' Market is relocating to the block of Dawson between Main and Sherwood. During Farmers' Market hours, the block will be closed off, and users of the Market will be able to enjoy a more central location with better tree shade and a more linear layout.  Users of the Market are encouraged to bike or walk to market when able, but when driving we ask that users park north of Main Street to keep congestion on Main to a minimum.  Parking within one block of the market offers a 5x increase in market parking from the previous location, so there should be plenty of parking for market goers!
