Sponsored by The City of Charlottesville Parks and Recreation -The Charlottesville City market is a producer only market of farmers, food vendors, crafts, and artisans – The Charlottesville City Market is held every Saturday from 7:00am till Noon from April through December Downtown Charlottesville at Water Street and South Street between 1st and 2nd.
After the Market Meeting February 20 2016, we decided to revive the vendor operated site since the vendors wanted to be able to manage an informative site about the market and it vendors. The City officials at the meeting said many other organizations maintain external sites to promote more specific and detailed information about their organization. So here we are – we will try to find ways to support the cost of hosting and maintaining this site and make it more accessible and editable by the vendors themselves.
Our sincere hope is to have vendors able to post and edit information about their products and presence at the market as easily and as often as they feel necessary. The process of providing a protected and secure membership system so that vendors will have access to their personal and business posts will take a bit of technical work. We want to provide the most cost effective and secure platform for our fellow vendors, prevent spam and keep the site safe and secure. Vendors will have a membership process to sign up and will then be given special credentials and password to login to this site to post their data on their information page.
We are longtime vendors ourselves and have been hosting and registering this web presence for over 15 years absorbing the total cost and labor effort. For some reason a couple of years back we were asked to disable the site so the city could provide their new web presence. We did so but after this 2016 meeting the vendors overwhelmingly wanted more than the city site and many asked me personally to revitalize and reactivate this site.
So here we go!
