Summer is in session, wetter than usual, yet still steamy and delicious. C'mon by the 39th Street Community Market on Wednesday from 4:30 til 7:30 to get your reusable sacks filled with local food and other fun goods. Speaking of which, if you bring in a cloth or other reusable bag (leather? burlap?) for produce, you can get a ticket from me (Dave) at the market tent (by the coffee shop) or my daughter (Felicity). This Reuse Reward Raffle ticket entitles you to a monthly drawing for a basket of market goodies from our vendors. Don't forget to come by and show me your stylish vegetable apparel for a chance to win.
Here's what's in season...
Tomatoes Peppers Cucumbers Fava Beans Zucchini Summer squash Potatoes Onions Garlic Herbs (Pesto!!!) Flowers Carrots Eggplant
Plus Honey, Beef, Jams, Jellies, Dips, Breads, Sprouts, Vegan cheeses and Artistic Embellishments by Linh and friends!!!
We now have an excellent caricature artist joining us at 39th each Wednesday. Take your child, your dog or your cute self over for an artistic impression to enjoy for years to come.
For this weeks children's activity, kids will be going home with a handsome walking stick (NOT the insect) of their own making. Our friend, Kim the cattle rancher has been saving choice wood up for years and will be bringing them to the market for the kids to decorate. Bring the youth!
Oh yeah, we will be joined this week by the dynamic sounds of 20,000 Strong Men. Be there and sing along!
