— 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.

Trac­tor Sup­ply Co. is lo­cated at 711 Wash­ing­ton Ave. in Ch­ester­town. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 410-778-2047 or visit www.trac­tor­sup­ply. com.
