'The Original' Farmers' Market Thrives in New Location

The Plymouth Farmers' Market changed location, but nothing else has in the midst of a succesful summer.

Barbara Anglin was worried that a new location and new competition would do serious damage to the farmers' market she's managed and grown over the past nine years.

But she's happy to say she was wrong.

"It's been crazy," she said during a break at last Thursday's market at its new location on a grassy field at Plimoth Plantation. "It's like the old times when the parking lot was full and people actually had to wait to get in."

Anglin credits the support of the farmers and producers who stood by her last year, and the 600-plus people who submitted a petition supporting Anglin's market to the Board of Selectmen.

"It's all due to the the people who have stood by us," Anglin said.

I guess it's a secret location because the reporter, Casey Meserve, failed to mention where it has moved to.... Nice

It moved to the Plantation.

I finally stopped in at Stephen's Field to check out the market; knew there had been some flap over it. Couldn't miss the competing signage. So I asked, while I was there, "Which one was the original?" I got some rigmarole about the one down to the Plantation being "for profit" and the one at Stephen's paying in to the town coffers or some such nonsense. Never did answer my question...so I knew. I won't go back to that one. Maybe I'll see about the other—the original—one next week, and thank you kindly.
