BRISTOL — What began as nostalgia for the former Bristol Farmers Market has evolved into a concerted effort to launch a new monthly summer event in town — part market, part community gathering and part to-be-determined.
“I loved the old Bristol Farmers Market on the green on Saturday mornings years ago,” wrote Bristol resident Amy Elkins on Front Porch Forum last month. “I would love to see it return.”
Terri Mayer Thomsen agreed.
“I also wish we had a Farmers Market,” Thomsen wrote in the same forum. “Is there anyone out there that feels the same way?”
The answer, in short, is “yes.”
