Westport, CT - From its humble beginnings in the parking lot of the Westport County Playhouse in 2006 to this, its 12th year, the Westport Farmers’ Market has demonstrated a commitment to local food and community that is reflected in its steady, stalwart growth. This week the WFM launched a better-than-ever website that echoes that trajectory from small-town market to community fixture.
“Our new website reflects all that is good about the Westport Farmers’ Market, it helps address of challenge in clearly explaining our programming tg in and outside of the market walls - we are not "just" a farmers' market.” says Lori Cochran-Dougall, executive director and market manager. “With it, we honor Paul Newman’s vision and our market history, while simultaneously presenting myriad ways the WFM makes a difference in the lives of shoppers, the community, and vendors.”
While the website presents the usual pages found on other sites, the story it tells is profoundly personal. From a blog of recipes using food from the market, to the presentation of sponsors, vendors, a board of directors, and groups the market assists, one feels part of the WFM story from first web page to last. Regardless of age or status of any kind, the new WFM website invites all in to virtually enjoy and experience Fairfield County’s fastest-growing community farmers’ market. But don’t take our word for it, visit the new site at www.westportfarmersmarket.com. And then make a plan to attend the market, meet the vendors, and experience what many describe as the best farmers’ market in the state, if not the country.
