Funky Friday Farmers Market at BADSEED - A MUST ON FIRST FRIDAYS IN THE CROSSROADS

Howdy Friends and Supporters of Urban Agriculture,

Wow!!! What a weekend. Thanks to all of you who graced us with your presence this Sunday at the Urban Farms and Gardens Tour. BADSEED Farm had over 350 people come through!!! That is truly amazing. The plants are vibrant and alive from all the attention and energy of so many enthusiastic community members, and my three usually rambunctious, dancing baby goats are completely wiped out from playing with children. After the tour they were all sprawled out on their backs in the shady pasture fast asleep......

Well, now with the farm tour behind us, exhausted farmers can go back to putting their full attention into growing luscious and flavorful foods for all you famished foodies out there. I assume folks will need to load up on local goodies for their 4th of July festivities, and I am pretty sure us renegade urban growers at the BADSEED Farmers Market this Friday (from 4:30 - 9 PM) can help you out!! Here's what we've got:
