Farmer’s Market opens at The Forum

A group of businesses experienced in selling at farmers’ markets is banding together to sow the seeds of a new winter market in Granville.

“Starting a market is a little tough sometimes, because people need to get to know you’re here and need to know what you have,” said Bob Palulis of Salem, who runs Pure-N-Simple and is organizing a weekly farmers’ market from 3 to 6 p.m. every Friday through April at The Forum on East Potter Avenue in Granville.

The market is in its third week and vendors include Colebrook Wine, Saratoga Apple, Sugarloaf Farms, Long Lane Angus, Bold Mountain Garlic and Herbs, and Rascher Maple Syrup.

Another vendor is Happy Hens Hobby Farm, which provides eggs, and Debbie Patire, who sells a variety of items at her craft stand, Sew Busy.

“The only way we sell is through farmers’ markets, and we thought this one sounded like another good opportunity,” said Fran Morrison of Colebrook Wine, whose firm does more than a dozen farmers’ markets a week. “I have high hopes for this one.”

Nate Darrow of Saratoga Apple said he thought a new winter market in Granville was a good idea.

“We store our apples, so we have product year-round,” he said. “The number of markets is limited during the winter, and we’re always looking for another market to add to our weekday list.

“When we heard about this one, we said, ‘Let’s try it.’ I hope we can build this market,” he said.

Palulis said the idea to start the market came from Bob Anderson, who runs markets throughout the area, including the summer market in Granville.
