Roswell Farmers and Artisans Market
The Roswell Farmers and Artisans Market says that its trailer full of the supplies used to run the market has been stolen. 

A trailer belonging to a North Fulton farmers market has reportedly been stolen.

The “devastating and especially cruel theft” of the supplies used to run the Roswell Farmers and Artisans Market every Saturday happened at Waller Parkaccording to the non-profit group. A police report was filed June 3. 

The market has started a fundraiser to replace the dozens of items, a list including tents, tables and an engraved market bell. The estimated value is $5,277. 

As of Tuesday afternoon, the campaign had raised more than $1,500 of its $5,300 goal. 

“One of our goals is securing a safer, more populated place to park a replacement trailer, since we are told that City Hall is not an option,” the market wrote. The stolen trailer was gray with green farmers market stickers on the back.

The market, which began serving Roswell in 2007, was voted the top medium-size market in America by Farmland Trust in 2011. The seasonal event is held in the parking lot behind Roswell’s city hall at 38 Hill St.

The market’s board president spoke to the police, according to Stephanie Luke, market manager. 

If anyone has information on the stolen items, contact the Roswell Police Department at 770-640-4100.
