Local business owners Jessica and Nathan Rogers launching a farmers' market in downtown Stirling.
STIRLING-RAWDON—After a long hiatus in the village of Stirling, the local farmers’ market is returning to the covered bridge.
Local business owners Jessica and Nathan Rogers, who operate Creekside Yoga in downtown Stirling, said they saw an opportunity to connect the community with local growers and producers by way of organizing Market in the Village.
“We have lived in Stirling for four years now and there has never been a farmers’ market in that time,” Jessica told The Belleville Local. “Our area is rich with growers, producers and makers and we feel it’s so important to support them.”
The community, she added, has missed having a market for several years. Beginning July 3, folks can visit the covered bridge at 26 Front Street East in Stirling for locally grown, produced and handmade items. The market will be an evening event, beginning at 4:30 p.m.
“It is the market’s goal to provide those in our area with seasonal weekly access to fresh produce, meat, baked, preserved and bottled items, plus so much more,” Jessica said. “Stop in on your way home from work or before heading on to your weekend away.”
