The Main Street Market 2021 was a success! And the committee is looking for your feedback on what could be improved. If you have participated in the market, please complete this survey.

Big thanks to everyone who was there. Feedback from vendors and business owners in the downtown area has been positive. The nine-week Farmers Market event, held on Thursday evening, drew lots of people to downtown Wellington. There were special family-friendly events every week, which provided a great excuse to get out.

The committee that helped organize this event consisted of Kelly Carol, Gary Green, Emma Hanson, Sarah Braun, Erin Jerome, Adrienne McCormick, Hannah Poch, Shirrell Tietz, Mario Quinonez, Linda Stoddard, and Annie Lindgren. Thank you for your volunteer hours and dedication to making this event a success in the first year of the Wellington Main Street Program.

The planning for the market next year is in progress. Sellers can register as early as January 2022. The committee plans to change the dates and times for the Thursday night market to allow for a later season. For more information, visit
