When people think about an outdoor farmer’s market, they may not think that it caters to people’s specific needs. They most likely think of a flea market that is designed for people to come in, walk around a little, and leave. In some cases, this may be true. However, it does not apply to our farmer’s market. We pride ourselves on being a place for families to go and spend the day. Therefore, we have a lot of on site facilities to make it possible.
The Facilities We Provide
We have a lot of things that make us the best farmer’s market in all the surrounding area. We provide our visitors with enough to do and see to ensure that they want to spend the day with us. We discovered a long time ago that if you want people to stay, you have to give them a reason to stay and everything that they could possibly need while there. We have something for everyone and a place to relax when you need a break from walking. We have play areas for kids who are tired of walking around looking at fruits, vegetables, and merchandise, we have picnic areas for people to enjoy a lunch or a snack of fresh fruit recently purchased, a food court where you can enjoy a prepared meal, ATMs scattered randomly so that one is always nearby if you realize the vendor you want to buy from cannot accept your debit card, and more.
The one thing that surprises people about our farmer’s market is the quality of our facilities. During the warm summer months, our guests can relax in the shade if they begin to feel too warm. Picnic areas are covered and there are indoor areas where you can escape the heat nearby. Beyond that, our playgrounds are clean, our food areas are trash free, and our bathrooms are equipped with only the best that we could find. In fact, we have several restrooms located on the premises and all of them feature the best low flow toilet that we could find. The bathroom facilities are also clean. These toilets are designed to flush away all traces of the person who used it before and they meet our expectations completely. There are also people who are readily available to clean the bathroom areas that the toilet cannot touch. This is a far cry from porta pots which most people associate with an outdoor farmer’s market.
Why We Do So Much?
We take pride in our facility and we are doing our part to ensure that the people who want fresh items can have easy access to them. We also enjoy knowing that our farmers market can be more than just a farmer’s market. To you, the idea of toilets that flush may be unique among other markets like ours, and it may not seem like a big deal. To us, it is proof that we are up to the challenge of giving our guests the things that they need. We like knowing that our toilets are always clean and ready for the next person and that there is no risk of them saying how nasty the toilet is. It helps us, it helps our vendors, and it helps those who choose to spend a day with us.
Since we put in so much effort to our facilities, there are concerts held here and many other special events. None of those things would be possible in our eyes if we had a market that was unable was miserable to go to. We want people to eat healthier and for them to be able to find the food that they want to eat. We want kids to come visit us with their parents and feel excited by the idea of returning again in the near future. We want older citizens to feel that they can come see us and take a break when they need to. In short, we do all that we can do to ensure that everyone feels at home within our farmer’s market gates.
