NORFOLK — It was rainy and cold on Saturday, May 19, as the Norfolk Farmers Market opened for its 12th season outside Town Hall.

The uninviting weather did not scare away vendors or visitors, however.

“This is always a rain-or-shine thing,” market manager Rusty Warner said. “Seeing who comes out here on a day like today is how you can tell who has the salt to call themselves a real New Englander.”

Eighteen vendors from Northwest Corner towns were at the market, which had farm products and work by artisans and crafters.
