An Ambler Farmer’s Market

As you may know, Ambler recently hosted its 19th annualย Oktoberfest. ย I spent a few of the initial Oktoberfest hours volunteering and had then planned to take some photos to share with you… but there was so much going on and I ended up having such a good time that my photography took a wayward course, to say the least ๐Ÿ™‚

My timeย volunteeringย was to consist mainly of selling “guesses” as to the weight of a giant pumpkin, t-shirts and the like; an ancillary job was to talk to people about the prospect of a farmer’s market coming to Ambler. ย If you live in Ambler I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I spent the majorityย ofย my time discussing the proposed market and little time selling Ambler Main Street’s wares (all for good cause, of course).

A market in Ambler is a hot topic, and in my opinion, a much needed addition. ย The goal is to establish an outdoor farmers market, located at Trax Cafe, which will featureย fresh farm products from local farms, much of which will be organic. ย I personally support theย proposedย market and think that it is an excellent and necessary component to our community. ย It was made clear that afternoon that many share myย sentiments,ย as a tremendous amount of people expressed their support for the market. ย Of course the topic of a farmer’s market quite often segued into the need for a general market, or small scale grocery store, but that is another (long-winded) discussion for another time. ย In the mean time, let me know what you think!
