BETHANY BEACH FARMERS’ MARKET – JUNE 30 2024 Market Report

It’s Summertime, and it’s all about the weather! We all want to be outside in the world as much as possible – smell it, feel it, hear it, live it! Mother Nature looked upon us this Sunday with kindness.  After a week of dire forecasts of storms, she held off until the last vendors were packed up and headed home. At 12:30 the heavens opened up with vengeance and much needed rain!
