Farmers Market Saturday July 21

GREETINGS!

The market is 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.

Looks like rain (and boy have we NEEDED it!), so pack your umbrellas or rain jackets just in case!

I have a few more farm tours to go before I have reached all of the veggie, fruit and meat farms at our markets! In an effort to get to know our vendors and their offerings better I have truly come away with a  beautiful connectivity and I am pleased to share their stories with you as well! You can find their stories here: Golden Fleece is this weeks featured vendor.

Children’s Tent activity will run from 9:30-12:30 and will be making masks in the shape of fruits and veggies! Come and get creative with Miss Jill

Bill Personke and his daughter Katie will rock the mic from 10:15-12:30 – pull up a chair and enjoy our weekly music!
