The Green Market at Wellington will celebrate its season opening day on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 9 a.m. next to the Wellington Amphitheater.
This market re-opened last November under new management and a new name. It’s a more upscale market that now accommodates Wellington’s more affluent visitors.
The market boasts amenities that are conveniently located near the vendors, such as a shaded sitting area with restrooms. For the kids, there is Scott’s Place playground.
Shoppers of the Green Market at Wellington can sit back and relax in a lush green environment while supporting the community by shopping vendors of locally grown plants and organic products. The market offers a wide selection of produce, ranging from fruits and vegetables, herbs, spices and fresh flowers to favorites like fresh cider doughnuts and coffee, olive oils and local honey.
The market also offers artisan foods, pastries and baked goods, and a unique selection of artists and crafters selling jewelry, handicrafts and other interesting wares. This year, there will be several new vendors alongside the favorite vendors that many who support the market have grown to love.
Bring your pets, as the Green Market at Wellington is not only pet friendly, it’s also a great meeting place for pet enthusiasts to show off their furry friends.
Admission to the market is free with plenty of free, on-site parking. Opening day will feature live music performed by Karen House, and a kid-friendly pirate ship for the little ones to enjoy.

Wellington will have to spend a little more to get the community to come out.
There should be music at every market event. There should be some kind of seating and tables to allow the public to sit, stand and eat (items that can be removed once the market has ended. Perhaps, even umbrellas put out so people can spread a blanket and nibble on the food they purchased. There should be some water activity on the ‘waterfront’ at the market. Kayaking, canoeing, paddle boat but something to engage the public.
We’ll come. but the Village needs to step up and Help create an atmosphere. The new green market management can’t do it alone. Vendors won’t be interested if there are no people to buy their products.
