Riverwalk Farmers’ Market

The market began approximately 14 years ago when several downtown merchants decided it would be an interesting addition to the downtown area. The market eventually became part of Downtown Milford, Inc. (DMI), and was operated by Jim Cooper for several years before his retirement. During Jim’s oversight, the market expanded to include not only local produce and farm items but arts and crafts as well. In recent years a Riverwalk Farmers Market Committee, consisting of 10 Milford residents, has been organized to carry out the logistics and activities associated with the market.

The Riverwalk Farmers Market has gained statewide attention as David Smith, Agricultural Marketing Specialist for the State of Delaware, wrote a letter in support of the organization’s efforts for this year’s application to the Great American Main Street Award. “The Riverwalk Farmers Market in Downtown Milford, Delaware is one of the most successful and popular markets in the First State, and has been in existence for the benefit of the local community for many years now,” stated Smith. “The market brings energy and life to downtown Milford every Saturday morning…”
