As most of you know, a Garden Nursery is a seasonal business and for the last few years Tom Gossett, owner of Gossett Brothers Nursery, was looking for ideas to enhance the Nursery’s role in the community during the long winter months, when the Nursery is normally closed.
Pat Imbimbo, Owner of New England Farms, managed a small farmers market that was looking for a location that could host a farmers market year round. As fate would have it, Tom bumped into Pat, and in the fall of 2008, Gossetts Farm Market was born.
The market runs year round, with seasonal vendors coming and going. In the Spring, Summer and early Fall you can find the Market outside tucked into the Nursery, and surrounded by the lush and colorful plant offerings from Gossett Brothers Nursery.
In the late Fall and Winter, the Market moves into the Gossett garage, warmed by a wood burning stove and the winter sun (the garage is just a really big greenhouse). Aromas of pies, homemade breads, hot cider and other treats fill the Market. Patrons are kept warm and dry as they enjoy the offerings of the only year-round farmers market in the area.
At the Gossett’s Farm Market you’ll find the fresh organic food from our vendors, free food samples from our Chef Demos and local talent who love to share their passion in whatever art, craft or discipline they specialize in.
So come visit us, the Market runs every Saturday from 9:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m. rain or shine.
We know that there are several different Farmers Markets you can visit, and we thank you for choosing Gossetts Farm Market.
If you have any suggestions or ideas on how to make the Market even better, feel free to leave a comment below. If your a vendor and would like information about joining the Gossetts Farm Market or if your a patron and you have any general questions about the Market, call Pat Imbimbo at 518-642-3270
