The weather gods have been testing us of late. For those of you who missed the straight line winds or micro-burst or whatever it was last Saturday. Tents were flying, and a bit of panic was in the air, for a brief moment. Then, I saw a women’s handbag flying about 40 feet in the air and caught by Alex of Mood Wood Farms. What ensued after the shock, was a caucophony of laughter, farmers and shoppers alike working in a community effort to save what we could in the soggy mess.
A hot busy week, but lots accomplished so feeling good.
At market we'll have - cabbage, purple, orange and white cauliflower, broccoli, swiss chard, kale, lots of zucchini, a few tomatoes (yeah!), cucumbers, onions, potatoes, kohlrabi, and more.
See you at market!
Jeanna and Lonnie
Robbins and Jim
Benedict Builders will have their sustainably and humanely raised meats, eggs, honey and artisanal cheeses.
We'll have some great music from our favorite band - the Freestate Ramblers.
Now just because you don't see a vendors name doesn't mean they won't be there. It may mean they were in the field and too busy harvesting their goodies. What surprises await?!!
