Thank You From the Crozet Farmers’ Market

On behalf of the Crozet Farmers’ Market, I wish to thank the community for your support in 2012. The market, which is held weekly on Saturday mornings in the parking lot of the Crozet United Methodist Church, successfully closed with a $500 donation to the church’s Food Pantry.

This success was possible through the hard work of our vendors and the tremendous support of many shoppers who made the weekly trip to the market. The market is truly a community-based activity and we are very proud that we can support our community and help our neighbors at this time.

I thank Pastor Doug Forrester and the members of the Crozet United Methodist Church for their continuing support, Sandy Wilcox and the tenants of the Blue Goose Building for supporting the vendors and providing overflow parking spaces, and Allison Montgomery and the Master Gardener volunteers from the Virginia Cooperative Extension for providing a gardening help desk and planning children’s activities throughout the season.

In 2013, the parking lot will be under construction and the market will relocate across the street to the parking lot of the Tabor Presbyterian Church. I thank Rev. Dr. Jewell-Ann Parton and the Session for allowing the market to use this lot and remain in downtown Crozet.

For information about the market, contact me at 434-823-1092 or email aminutolo@embarqmail.com.
