Winterville Celebrates New Farmers Market

May 22, 2017

Town officials and community members opened a downtown, open-air farmers market with a grand opening celebration. Located on an empty lot on the corner of Main and Church streets, Market on the Square is the culmination of work by the Winterville Town Council and Winterville’s economic developer Stephen Penn. “The location is in the heart of Winterville allowing easy access and its pedestrian-friendly,” Penn said. “The market will offer patrons fresh produce and healthy items.” “It promotes local vendors. It promotes some of our local farms. And we’re just starting, so I know this is going to be picking up,” said Winterville Councilman John Hill. “I think it’s going to be a great thing for our community.”
