At the opening celebration of the new season, Roseland Farmers' Market Manager Frank Butterfield thanked the entire community for their support and acknowledged the efforts of Roseland's Mayor John Duthie and all the members of the governing body for seeing that the marketplace thrives for another year. He noted with appreciation the support of the Roseland Environmental Commission, Sustainable Roseland and the Roseland Green Team.
"Every year we've taken it to the next level, Butterfield commented.
"We've added about five new vendors this year.
It's been our goal to provide this type of fresh and
locally produced or grown food for our community."
Pointing to the committee members, Duthie said,
"This was you guy's vision five years ago,
you've done a fine job bringing it all together.
I also want to welcome back all the vendors and
wish them a very successful year again this year."
