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.
