The 5 HealthyTowns Foundation (www.5healthytowns.org) has provided funding to operate the Manchester Farmers Market in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and again in 2017. This Foundation provides funds for 5 communities, Chelsea, Dexter, Grass Lake, Manchester and Stockbridge through local coalition. The Manchester Wellness Coalition meets the 4th Tuesday of the month at noon in the Village Room (no meeting in December).
The Farmers Markets from all 5 towns work together and we promote each others markets.
