Keeping Downtown Milford Vibrant & Beautiful

By Lee Nelson, DMI Executive Director

A big welcome to The Riverwalk Farmers Market which opened for the season with 26 vendors – including exciting new additions like A Touch of Italy from Lewes and Delaware Provisions joining our group of popular returning vendors. Every one tells us how they love shopping at the market, there’s local fresh produce, cheeses, pastries, cured meats, beautiful flowers, quality crafts and more on offer. Please support it and bring out of town friends. The market will be held in the park at the Riverwalk and S. Walnut Street every Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. through October. There’s a new team of DMI volunteers organizing the market this year – look out for them in their market ‘STAFF’ tee-shirts if you need assistance. This year we thank Bayhealth for sponsoring the market.

DMI would like to thank the 20 cheerful volunteers who donated their time last Sunday morning, May 6, by planting flowers in the hayrack baskets throughout Downtown Milford. We hope that you will agree that Downtown Milford is looking better than ever. We invite everyone to enjoy the flowers, as well as the new trees that line our streets. We thank all the volunteers but a special thanks to Brenda Wilkins for designing and ordering the flowers used in this year’s display; Milly Pedersen for organizing the sponsorship efforts; Chuck and George at Dolce for generously opening their doors to the volunteers and supplying coffee and pastries; and Milford Rental for supplying stepladders. We would also like to acknowledge our partners, Gary Emory and the Milford Parks and Recreation Department crew, who worked hard on Sunday morning to assist with the planting and who will be watering our flowers throughout the season.

It not only takes time to keep the baskets full of flowers, it also takes money. Sponsorships for the baskets are still available for $100 each. Help your hometown – individually, a group of friends or your company – however you can. All sponsors of baskets will be listed on a poster in the information kiosk for the season. We need all sponsors signed up by June 15 before the poster is printed. For more information, contact us at 839-1180, or visit our website at DowntownMilford.org.
