Chestertown Farmer’s Market: Over 1,100 people came through the gate last week. Committee members met with supervisor Craig Leggett to discuss ways to deal with the traffic/parking problem (but isn’t this a good problem to have!). No Parking signs will be posted on the driveways of the town hall & we ask everyone to obey the No Parking signs on Main Street, don’t park on the grass and use the crosswalks. Open every Wednesday from 10AM – 2PM!
