Did you hear the “WOO-HOO!”? That was me, getting the news that our new vendor application has been accepted at the Florence Farmers Market!
Florence is a village of Northampton with a proud and colorful history. Home to a utopian community of Abolitionists in the early 1800’s, it was a stop on the Underground Railroad as well as being former slave, abolitionist, and women’s rights activist Sojourner Truth‘s hometown from 1843 to 1857.
Today, Florence’s old manufacturing mills have been filled with artist studios, yoga/massage/acupuncture centers, day spas, vibrant ‘local food’ cafes (including a vegan cafe!), and it even has its own vineyard and winery.
The Florence Civic Center hosts the popular Wednesday afternoon meetup spot that is the Community Farmers Market. We’ll be there every other week from 2 to 6 p.m. with our handmade vegan bodycare, olive oil soaps, fresh-cut herbs, heirloom vegetables, and log-cultured mushrooms.
Hawkeye and I are so excited to be joining the fun!
