The Fair Lawn Farmer's Market, which has set up shop on Wednesdays in the New Song Church parking lot since June, has closed for the season.
On behalf of the Fair Lawn Garden Committee, farmer's market coordinator Jane Spindel thanked all parties who made the market possible this year.
"The Garden Committee wants to thank Fair Lawn residents for supporting the market, the New Song Church for allowing us to use their lot and the Road Dept. for bringing over the barricades every week," she wrote in an email to Patch.
At a council work session last month, Spindel raised the possibility of moving the floundering farmer's market from Radburn to the former Walsh Pool next year and running it in collaboration with Glen Rock.
That move is now unlikely to occur, Spindel said, because primary vendor Silver Lake Farm isn't sold on the idea that drivers will pull off the highway to stop in at the market.
"The farmer was pretty adamant about not moving the location so we may stay put with a small market, which in the end, may only be the farmer," Spindel wrote in an email.
Three vendors have abandoned the market in the past two years after failing to turn enough profit, but the farmer has continued to make enough for it to be worth their while, Spindel said.
