    Great idea, but this does not include the many Youth Markets. Some of them can be found on the greenmarket web page.

      Send me the link and I will include it and/or update the page. Youth Markets have a tendency to be not be permanent or last through more than a season or two. I ran one several years ago at Stevenson HS but when the school year and funding ended, so did the market.

    I did not appreciate the fact that I went today to go get some fruits and vegetables from the bissel farmers market and it didn’t ever show and I came from far for nothing with my two boys that was very unprofessional I’m not happy about it at all . If there’s a change it should be updated the paper received said they would be there Wednesdays and they weren’t and so does the internet you guys should have some sort of contact number so were aware of any changes like that. That was so unprofessional not happy about it at all.

      Really sorry to hear this. I was at Bissel as recently as Sunday and when asked they said the market was going to start Wednesday with the help of Summer Youth Employment Program Kids (SYEP). I will look in to it and personally forward your note. Thanks for the Heads Up.
