Grand Opening November 14th!

We are less than one week from opening our second season (November 14th), and we are super excited! We will are expecting more growers and producers all season this year than we had in our highest attendance weeks last season! There will be more variety and more quantity of everything from fresh produce to meat to baked goods, as well as useful and interesting items for daily living!

It also means that we need YOU and your neighbors, friends, co-workers, to be regular and loyal patrons to support all the fabulous growers and producers bringing their products to market. We’ve work hard to bring the market back for a second season in a fabulous new location, and to bring in a wonderful group of vendors. Our growers and producers have worked hard to grow, raise and otherwise plan to supply the market through the winter. Now it is up to you, as the true success of the market is determined by the strength and breadth of the customer base! With out you, there is no marketplace for the market.

The Frequent Shopper Card will be back for a possible two chances to win a $50 market goods “basket.” Remember to pick one up at the Market Information Table on Nov. 14th! Also, each week that you walk, bicycle or ride the bus, you can enter your name for a monthly prize drawing!

Please share this information with as many people as you can, and we look forward to seeing you on November 14th!
