Final 2017 Regional Sustainability Awards Flyer with Date Correction (cover page)_001

For the second year in a row, the Town of Coventry has received CRCOG’s Regional Sustainability Award–this time for its exemplary stewardship of the Coventry Farmers’ Market, a flagship regional destination and the only municipally-owned farmers’ market in the state. Since taking the helm in 2015, the Town has creatively managed and expanded the 22-week, ‘country-fair-type’ venue to maximize the market’s economic development opportunities as well as to provide local and regional small business and agricultural support. Success to date has hinged on strong partnerships, an innovative operations model, a committed cohort of volunteers, creative marketing efforts and a commitment to the market’s long term sustainability.
