The Bancroft Business Improvement Area has been working with invited interested producers to develop a thriving farmers’ market in the downtown. The result is a commitment to focusing on local food producers and those creating hand made products. The policy has been changed so that no off shore or mass produced items will be allowed. Plans are also in the works to make the space more inviting. An initiative is also underway to have the Bancroft Market become part of a pilot project that allows for the sale of VQA wines at the market, although this project has yet been confirmed. The market will run Monday through Saturday. In a pilot, the Friday Market will be open from noon until 8:00 p.m.
