Ross Ferry Farmers' Market Renovations and Covid_19 have forced us to rethink our Farmers' Market for 2020. We're sure you are going to love how we've adapted for this year. We've rebranded ourselves for 2020 as the ROSS FERRY FARM GATE MARKET. For more information on our Farmer's Market please click here.
What a crazy year we've had. I hope everyone is surviving this craziness and putting their best foot forward. For now, all activities at the Park have been suspended.

CHAIR REPORT This lovely Park would be unmanageable if it were not for the fabulous support of our Community. Practically every task at this Park is performed by a Volunteer. Our volunteers are the best! Special thanks to Graca H., our Volunteer Volunteer Coordinator for her amazing ability to mobilize and support our volunteers. I would like to thank your Directors – Mike, Karen, Alex, Gerald, and Paul. The Directors are quite possibly the hardest working of all the volunteers. They show up at every event, every meeting, and every ask. Each one has their own special skill and/or interest that they bring to the table. Without these hardworking folks our Park would suffer. They are the backbone of this Park and they make my role as Chair a whole lot less stressful. I am grateful for your commitment to our Park. Tonight, three of your Board Members are resigning. Paul stepped in at the last minute to help fill a void on the Board. He was our Site Supervisor and Fry Cook. He was particularly good at keeping Ryan busy. Gerald took on the task of obtaining our food permits and liquor licenses as well as taking the water samples and doing the sorts of things that go along with well maintenance. He also ensured we had pop and water for our Sundays and special events. Gerald, you were always there to lend a hand. Your insight and input will be missed. Alex, I will miss you the most. You have been a Director long before I came on board. Ages ago, when I, as a relatively new member, stood up and nervously suggested a finger wharf, you immediately backed me up. I feel like you have had my back ever since! I appreciate and value your guidance, support, encouragement, and friendship. On behalf of all of us I would like to thank you so very much for your dedication to this beautiful Park. It will be strange not seeing you at the Director meetings. We will miss you. I will miss you. Be warned, I will still be seeking your guidance. [Addendum] Mike, you have been an invaluable member of the team – Fry cook, site/student supervisor, Treasurer. You kept our Sunday BBQ’s running smoothly, helped supervise the students, made sure we had the cash floats for our events and kept us in line for submitting receipts. You were always ready to lend a helping hand.
