Wow! For so many reasons, ban't name them all. MAINLY, a chance to see old friends, buy from our local neighbors, chat & get all the latest news in Ringwood; eat fab food; hear terrific music. SUPPORT the efforts of all the charitable orgs that benefit from the Farmers' market venue; get the best veggies and fruits, plants, org. meats, home-made entrees, etc. etc. I LOVE IT -- brings back some nostalgia for the "good old days".
