Farmers Market Saturday June 29th

Greetings my dearest community members – This week is filled with amazing-ness. Come down to the market to see for yourself the quality and vibrancy of our market space! We will have a food demo by Monica Gabba who is the founder and CEO of Living In Balance Consulting – and she is a delight! She has some tasty recipes up her sleeve and will be showcasing her skills between 9-11 am!

A reminder that parking in the lot is tight (as we have all experienced). For this I am deeply sorry and cannot do anything about it. I am still hopeful that we can have a crossing guard to help with getting from easier parking to the market space, but in the meantime I appreciate your care and patience with cars and each other as we navigate the space. You are all wonderful!
