The first Gloucester Farmers’ Market was held Saturday at Ware Episcopal Church, which was attended by more than 2,000 patrons.
According to church volunteer Wes Jones, there were 56 vendors, 80 percent of which were from Gloucester and Mathews. During the market, there was an open-air yoga class held under the trees, a hymn sing held inside the church, and many children filling the playground.
Jones said the event “went off smooth as silk.” Many vendors were surprised to learn this was the first installation of the market since it went so well.
Many community organizations assisted with the event, including the Exchange Club of Gloucester-Mathews and Scout troops. A sheriff’s deputy also helped with the event.
The markets will be held on the second Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. until the end of the season in September.
