Thank you to everyone who helped make this year’s Edgewater Monday Market a success! . The market provided the finest quality meats, fruits & vegetables, fresh pastries, and a tasty selection of prepared foods at the Broadway Armory Parking Lot (5917 N Broadway). It showcased 16 local vendors, including Global Garden Farm, Parra Farms, Farmer Nick’s, and Blaque Millennium Kitchens. Community organizations and select pop-in vendor additions each week.
The Chamber’s bold move to Mondays was clear, to create less overlap in the crowded community market space and also capture a commuter audience on their way home from work or as they make their way to the beach. Encouraging attendees to round out their shopping at surrounding local businesses.
