Farmers’ Market is Moving to Brunswick Landing on September 26!

The BrunswickTopsham Land Trust Farmers’Market will be making its second move of the season.

From September 26th– October 31stit will be located on Brunswick Landing in the parking lotoff Pegasus Streetshared by the REAL School, Flight Deck Brewing and soon to be Wild Oatsat their new location: the address is 11 Atlantic Ave.

The Land Trust moved theMarket from its usual location on Crystal Spring Farm, to the Brunswick High School parkinglot at the start of the market season in May.This was to ensure adequate space between vendorsand space for customers to spread out, keeping everyone safewhile COVID-19 poses a risk to community health. The Land Trust and the High School had hoped to keep the market at the High School for the fullmarket season, but in order to safely offer school sports the High School will needto use their parking lots on Saturdays which conflicts with the market.

“Wesaw this as an opportunity totemporarilyhost the market nearournew offices on Brunswick Landing,and contribute to develop the Landing as a community space” says AngelaTwitchell, Executive Director of the Land Trust. The Land Trustreached out to TBW, LLC, Flight Deck Brewing, Wild Oats and TheREAL Schoolabout the possibility of using the lot they shareand everyone was enthusiastic.We are excited to welcomeone ofthe largest farmersmarketsin the state of Maine to Brunswick Landing. Showcasing our growing neighborhood in the town of Brunswick to the thousands of people who take advantage of the market each week is an enormous opportunity, and we are grateful for the BrunswickTopsham LandTrusts leadershipsays NateWildes, ManagingPartnerof Flight Deck Brewing.Wild Oatsis similarly looking forward tomore people coming to The Landing,while we won’t be moving toBrunswick Landing until late 2020, we are excited people will get a glimpse of our new building and experience the vibrant Brunswick Landing communitysays Marshall Shepard of Wild Oats.

While moving the market twice in one season isn’t ideal, and canbe confusing for customers, it has been necessary to keep everyone safe duringthe pandemic. The location on Brunswick Landingallows for distancingbetween vendors and customers, and abundant parking around the market area. “We are fortunate to have such amazing vendors atourmarket” says JacquiKoopman, Market Manager for the Land Trust“they have been very understanding as we have worked to make theMarket safe this season”.
