Farmers’ markets to be held at Tioga Pavilion in Belmont this summer

BELMONT — Gretta Olson-Wilder, Special Events Coordinator for the Town of Belmont, wanted to enter the farmer's market arena by offering something a bit different. Farmer's Markets in Belmont, scheduled for Sunday mornings, will be promoted as more of an event to attend versus a three minute dash to get lettuce. The Farmer's Markets will take place once per month on June 28, July 26, August 30, and September 20.

Vendor space is offered for a small fee of $50 for all four market days, to encourage participation and make it affordable to individuals with small operations. General liability insurance is required. Those interested in becoming a possible vendor may contact Gretta This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., call her at 603-998-3525, or review the Vendor Information Packet on the town's website at

Belmont market hours will be 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. It is hoped that they will become a gathering place by not only showcasing local vendors but to also offer a children's craft and/or activity and some live entertainment and demonstrations each month.

The new Tioga Pavilion and parking lot near the Belmont Mill on Mill Street will provide the perfect backdrop for these events. Parking is plentiful, and there are public restrooms at the pavilion.
