September 29 2013 Market Cancelled

Given the weekend's weather forecast, we have determined that conditions will be too unsafe to hold a market session this Sunday, September 29, 2013. The combined wind and rain over the weekend, if the forecast is correct, will create dangerous driving conditions for farmer and customer alike. Even if everyone was able to get to Hillsdale, it's unlikely the canopies could withstand the wind gusts. Anyone who was at the market last Sunday when the wind gusts came in will understand.

We don't take the decision to cancel a market session lightly. In the nearly 10 years (> 330 market sessions) of managing the Hillsdale Farmers Market, I have cancelled 4 sessions and closed 3 sessions early because of weather conditions. This month is the first time I had to make this decision 2 weeks in a row.

Now is a good time to remind everyone how the market will broadcast closure messages. We send closure messages via the Grapevine mailling list, Twitter ( or @HillsdaleFM ), Facebook (, and FlashAlert ( FlashAlert is a system used by schools, government agencies, utilities and others to broadcast emergency messages. Radio and TV stations use the FlashAlert feed for their emergency closure messages. All are good ways to find out if the market is closed in bad weather conditions.

Thank you for understanding our decision and for your loyal support of the farmers and vendors at the Hillsdale Farmers Market. Weather willing, we'll see you October 6th at 10am.
