Farmers’ markets can be like produce: Someone plants a seed. They grow and thrive. Eventually though, they wither and die.
Not so with the Westport Farmers’ Market. Stalls open in May for its 10th season — a very impressive feat.
To mark the occasion, it’s got a new tagline: “10 Years & Growing.”
And a new contest: a t-shirt competition.
WFM director Lori Cochran-Dougall invites anyone to submit a design. It should incorporate the tagline, and embody the WFM ideals: providing fresh, local, healthy and seasonal food to the community, in a fun, safe and healthy environment.
Designs can be for the front, back or sleeves of the t-shirt. They should be submitted electronically, in low-resolution format, to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is March 15.
The prize: seeing your design worn all summer long. While helping the Westport Farmers’ Market grow even more, for the next 10 years.
