WESTFORD — Last summer Westford’s Community Market moved from Westford Center to the Roudenbush Community Center. After a successful first season, the Center plans to expand on its success.

The recent move to 65 Main St. shortened the season to run from late-June through August, where it historically ran through October.. The Center  believed the move was necessary after struggling sales and a drop in foot traffic

In its  first year off the common, the farmer’s market found positive feedback with the new location.

Amanda Krohn, RCC community market manager, tells WestfordCAT, “Everyone was happy with the ability to move the market indoors when weather wasn’t favorable. It gives the community, vendors and staff access to bathrooms, water and indoor space while managing and visiting each week.”

Despite the positive feedback, Krohn noted  minor issues with parking. Krohn says it was addressed and will be monitored going into the 2023 season.

The market reopensJune 20 and will run through Aug. 22. They will be closed July 4.

Krohn announced that the market will be introducing weekly themes and invite special vendors and community members to join them throughout the season.

Themes include “Health and Safety”, “Pet Extravaganza Pet”, “International Day”, and “All About Art and Entertainment”.

“We are all excited about the upcoming season,” Krohn says.
