So, it’s official! The Health Department and the City of Goldsboro have worked together to support the Mini Mobile Farmer’s Market! The market, which opens on Wednesday, May 19th, will be from 9:30a.m. until 2:30p.m. every Wednesday through November. The NEW SITE is just around the corner from the old site. The market will be on Herman St. behind the Herman Park Center where the road intersects with Pou St. It is a nice spot with room to expand. There is sufficient parking for vendors and patrons and I think it will allow for greater visibility while still being easily accessed by the clients of the Health Department and DSS. The City Council has graciously approved 6 canopies for purchase that will be set up and taken down weekly by the Parks and Recreation staff.
If you know of someone who is interested in being a vendor (either from Wayne or a nearby county), please forward along the attached letter of invitation and rules and regulation forms. I greatly appreciate any help you can give to help promote this market. It is my hope that with the City of Goldsboro partnership, we will make strides to a more permanent market for the County of Wayne.
