Chimborazo Farmers Market in doubt (UPDATE)

UPDATE 6/9

Looks like it’s a no-go, folks. 10 days out and this event has disappeared from the GrowRVA website.

[sep]

ORIGINAL

So it appears that the monthly Chimborazo Farmers Market originally announced to start in April and then moved to May has instead become a one-off market scheduled for June 19.

Area resident Matt Riggs who had been working with GrowRVA since December to get a regular farmers market going in the park sent word of the change a few weeks ago, saying, “Once again it looks like this won’t really be happening… I tried.”

The GrowRVA website currently states that there will be a 3rd Friday of June event from from 5-9PM at the Chimborazo Playground Park Community Gardens.

Looking for fresh veggies? There will be at least three weekly farm stands in the area this summer:

Anyone familiar enough (admittedly I haven’t followed this that much) to explain why this isn’t happening/what’s stopping it?

@chpn too bad, looked like it had potential. Anything I can do let me know, been doing several festivals and gaining valuable contacts.
