Derry farmers market is open for winter
The winter market opened on Dec. 7 in its new official home and is scheduled to be held on the first and third Saturdays of each month through March 15, according to officials.
Farmers market administrators were forced to find a new home for the operation after the town decided earlier this year to no longer sponsor the market. The hall is a familiar location as the market has run out of the building during past winters, said Beverly Ferrante, market director.
Under the new arrangement, Ferrante will continue on as director and will work along with the East Derry Village Improvement Society.
The move follows a restoration project of the hall by the East Derry Village Improvement Society. The organization has worked over the past several years to restore the building that was constructed in 1875.
The next winter market is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 4. It is located indoors at the Upper Village Hall, 52 East Derry Road, East Derry. For more information, call 434-8974.
