SILER CITY — The Siler City Farmers Market is hoping to grow.

Jackie Adams, who hosts the vendors at the Oasis Open Air Market, is offering a deal to farmers and vendors, hoping to “kick start” the market. Adams notes that over the past three years, attendance and the number of vendors at the market has dwindled.

In an effort to boost participation, Adams is offering farmer’s market vendors a 10x10 space for free. To take advantage of the deal, vendors must agree to attend the market three of four weekends a month through September 1. After that, those who participated would then be offered a discounted rate for future vendor slots.

Adams said she hopes that if new vendors invest their time in Siler City without the investment of vendor fees, attendance at the local market will increase and word will spread.

Vendors who may participate in the free space offer include farmers, producers, bakers, arts and crafts, re-purposed articles, furniture, and third-party sellers. The deal would not apply to food service vendors, live animals, and firearm vendors. For more information, visit www.oasisopenairmarket.com for the vendor application.

“[I hope vendors] commit to reinvigorate the Siler City Farmer’s Market and take advantage of selling things in a market that growing,” Adams said.
