Barkley Village Wednesday Market starts today

by June Hathaway

I’m going to miss the Fairhaven Wednesday Farmer’s Market. The walk along the bay from downtown to Fairhaven is lovely in the summer. I enjoyed wandering among the market stalls, people watching, and stretching out on the grass to catch some rays while half-listening to the buskers.

I must admit, however, that I never bought so much as single radish.

It seems I wasn’t alone in this. Citing declining sales, the Wednesday Farmers Market has pulled up stakes and moved to Barkley Village.  The new Barkley Market kicks off this afternoon from 2pm-6pm with a grand opening featuring music from Lefty and the Right Hand Band. The market will continue every Wednesday through September.
