Farmers Market Saturday May 19th

Greetings All!

Micros! Lake Divide should have some tasty micro greens for your salads, soups, or just for straight snacking. Come and see what our other vendors have to offer as well!

The market will be held from 8am-1pm in the municipal lot adjacent to the First United Methodist Church on Park St. There is plenty of parking both on the street and in the lot behind the Purple Rose Theater.

Children’s Tent activity will run from 9:30-12:30 and is themed; “Roots, stems, flowers and fruits” and will include a matching game and more! Bring the kids out to explore their food systems and the biology of plant life.

We will also have two baked good fundraisers happening this weekend: MS awareness and the Japanese Shimizu exchange group
