Tractor Supply seeks vendors for market
— Tractor Supply Co. in Chestertown has announced it will hold a farmers market next month and is inviting local vendors to participate.
A news release states the market will be held from 10 a. m. to 2 p. m. Friday, Oct. 7, at its location in the Kent Plaza shopping center. It states crafters and growers with interests in “everything from homemade crafts and candles” to “baked goods, art and gardening” are welcome.
“The Farmers Market will be a celebration of the talent and expertise in our community,” Phil Reither, vice president of national and local store marketing, said in the release. “Whether it’s a side business or a hobby, our customers take in what they build, create and grow and we want to help them share their talents with the community.”
Speaking Tuesday, Public Relations’ Account Super- visor Brandon Puttbrese said the Chestertown store currently is in “recruitment mode.” He said local artists have been found and the store is reaching out to nearby farms.
“We picked a heavy traffic time frame, but we’re also giving vendors the option to stay a little longer if they want,” Puttbrese said.
The release states participants will have the opportunity to showcase and sell their goods or services, “free of charge” in tented areas near the storefront.
“At Tractor Supply, service means more than helping our customers save time and money. It means serving our community and supporting our customers’ passions,” Reiter said in the release.
Interested vendors can register online at www. tsceventpartners.com or in person at the Chestertown store. Nonprofit organization and food trucks also are welcome.
