Watford Market Looking For Garden Produce And Handmade-Item Vendors
“Watford City has had a farmers market for as long as I can remember.” says Daniel Stenberg one of the Watford Market organizers. “This year we are looking to expand the market by trying a new venue, adding music, demonstrations and hopefully more vendors.”
The McKenzie County Heritage Park located on the west side of Watford City will be the new location for the market this summer that runs weekly from late July through September. Regional and local musicians will be sought to share their talents with all who come to the market and will perform from the stage area out front of the historic Watford Train Depot. Further the goal is to have one or two demonstrations each week that are agricultural, history or art related.
Stenberg sees at least three things that are needed to make this market successful: vendors, volunteers and shoppers. With that their first step is to focus on finding folks who will be willing to grow and sell their garden produce (or handmade items) at market.
Watford Market will be having an informational meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 10 at Door 204 Coffee Shop. The meeting will be geared towards answering questions of prospective vendors, finding volunteers, and providing general information about the market to anyone who may be interested in learning more. If anyone has further questions about the market they can contact Daniel Stenberg at 701-204-1554 or find “Watford Market” on Facebook.
