The Arlington Area Renewal Project is sponsoring the ARLINGTON VILLAGE FARMERS’ MARKET to be held every Friday starting August 31 until October 5 from 4-7 PM.
The ARLINGTON VILLAGE FARMERS’ MARKET will be held on the grounds of THE ARLINGTON INN at the intersection of Route 7A & Route 313 in the center of Arlington.
In addition to local vendors of meats, eggs, breads, baked goods, produce, cheese, and other food products, a “Health Booth” will rotate services such as free blood pressure checks, chair massages, and reflexology. Other booths offering activities for adults and kids are being planned.
THE ARLINGTON INN will also host its renowned “Meet the Makers” series during the ARLINGTON VILLAGE FARMERS’ MARKET featuring different distilleries and breweries each week. Featured breweries and distilleries will be on hand to tell us what makes them special and how they do it. Special cocktails will be provided for purchase accompanied with selections of small plates for all to enjoy!
Proceeds from the ARLINGTON VILLAGE FARMERS’ MARKET vendor fees will benefit Burdett Commons, an organization established to provide activity and events for youth and seniors of the Arlington, Sunderland, and Sandgate area.
Project Lead, Col. Jim Baker, says, “This is another example of how our residents are collaborating together to offer new experiences for our community and to bring visitors to our beautiful town – and benefit our local nonprofit organizations. People now have the opportunity to shop for the weekend – or the week - on their way home from work, enjoy some music, engage in some fun activities and still have their weekend free for family and friends.”
The Arlington Area Renewal Project is a totally volunteer group of involved residents focused on collaborating for the common good by bridging our long tradition with a vision for future opportunities.
