Cudahy Farmers Market Opens Friday

May 6, 2010

Downtown Cudahy will be brimming with the sights, smells and sounds of summer this Friday as the City’s annual farmers market opens for business at a new location on Packard Avenue.

 

The market has moved to the city parking lot next to the Cudahy Family Library. It’s a larger and more visible location that will allow for a greater number of vendors and shoppers, as well as better parking.

 

More than a dozen farmers and other vendors will be coming to Cudahy on Fridays this spring, summer and fall. Shoppers will find fresh-cut flowers and produce in addition to packaged foods, crafts, jewelry and other specialty gift items.

 

But the opening of the 2010 Cudahy Farmers Market is bittersweet. Long-time market organizer and Cudahy resident Mike Pinter died last week at the age of 82. Over the last several years he had been responsible for all aspects of the market, and had gotten to know many of the farmers who come to Cudahy every year.

 

“Mr. Pinter’s outstanding dedication to this community should serve as an example to all Cudahy residents “, said Mayor Tony Day. “He not only donated his time and talents to the Farmers Market but also to the historical society and the library. He will be deeply missed.”

 

The Cudahy Farmers Market will be open every Friday from noon until 6:00 p.m. through the end of October, weather permitting.
