Ramsey Farmers Market Hosting Youth Sports Equipment Drive Sunday
Residents are asked to bring gently used items to donate
This Sunday, the Ramsey Farmers Market is hosting a Youth Sports Equipment Drive.
In conjunction with the Ramsey Recreation Commission, the Market is asking shoppers to bring “gently used” sports equipment Sunday to donate. The Rec Commission has arranged for donated items to be given to children in local urban areas that are in need of sports equipment.
Residents can drop off equipment in the Ramsey train station during market hours Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The drive is just part of the charitable work done by the Market each week, It also participates in a “Paying It Forward” program, in which vendors donate food products to the Center for Food Action in Mahwah. The Market asks community members to add to the donation each week by bringing non-perishable food items to donate to the CFA.
In addition to the usual shopping and fresh produce at the Market this Sunday, residents can also look forward to music from Ed Packer, children’s crafts and a chef demonstration by Chef Dominique, who will be making Andalusian Cold Gazpacho Soup.
