To the Editor,

Tiny Jacksonville’s first farmer’s market last Friday showed that determination and good planning by a small number can produce an astonishingly good product. More than twenty local farmers, crafts people, bakers, jam makers, jewelry makers, cheese makers, a pizza maker, a baker of to-drool-over baked beans, turned the town municipal parking lot into an array of unique Vermont offerings. In these days of online shopping turning life antiseptic, a chance to meet the people who created these things in their kitchen and shop, adds a dimension we all long to experience.

The market is held at the convenient time of 4-7pm each Friday, providing an opportunity for people driving north on route 100 to stop long enough to meet creative people and pick up delicious food and an array of hand created crafts. We are lucky to live in one of the rare places where the human dimension trumps the impersonal corporate world. You would do well to drop by on Friday afternoon.
