Farmers market a welcome addition to the island

A group of islanders are organizing Jamestown farmers to stage a local farmers market at Fort Getty starting in July.

We think that is a great idea.

Local agriculture has gained much attention in recent years as people have become more concerned about where their food comes from. You can’t get any closer than food that is grown here on the island and that is what the Jamestown farmers market plans to feature – island grown food.

Already, the Jamestown farms have developed quite a following among residents. We’re looking forward to shopping at the farmers market this summer.
