WILTON — A farmers market will be coming soon with the opening date dependent on the weather.

Corey Black said organizers are hoping to open the first weekend in June. The market will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Old Wilton Tannery, 833 U.S. Route 2 East.

Vendors are being sought to offer foods, seasonal crafts, seedlings, artisan products, flowers, vegetables, chickens and other products. Musicians are also wanted.

Cost is $15 per Saturday or $185 for the season, which will last through September. Fees will go toward picnic tables and signage for the market. There is lots of space, good parking and areas to store tents, tables and other equipment from week to week.

Black’s daughter Marah Black, the main organizer, is working on the project as part of an entrepreneur class at Foster Career and Technical Education Center. She has developed a Facebook page for the market: https://bit.ly/2H49FAO.

Marah Black has met with the organizer for the Skowhegan Farmers’ Market and gotten lots of ideas, including displays of antique tractors and educational talks and demonstrations.

She also plans to work with the United Way of the Tri-Valley Area and the Greater Franklin Food Council Campaign to End Hunger. The goal is to help people increase their awareness of local farmers and farmers markets and expand the availability of local products in grocery stores.

Corey Black said, “We’re hoping people will make the farmers’ market part of their weekend, stop by and buy local.”

Marah Black raises laying hens and sells the eggs to teachers at Mt. Blue High School where she is a senior.
