Wednesday Farmers Market, October 23!

Greetings all –

What a lovely bluebird day for the second to last market! We have our final outdoor market NEXT WEEK WEDNESDAY. There will be a market basket giveaway and your favorite vendors.

Our FINAL SATURDAY market will be in the Chelsea State Bank parking lot once again. I just received word that there will be flagged traffic and back ups downtown once again and so we will be where we were last week. 

With that, what to expect today…

When: every Wednesday from 1-5pm through the end of October (we then move indoor to the Washington St. Education Center on Saturdays for November and December!)

Where: Corner of M52 and Old US 12. There is plenty of parking near the businesses on the south side. Please keep the north spaces and those closest to the bank open for bank patrons.

Who: the most committed farmers around, all the lovely artisans and YOU.

GOLDEN FLEECE FARMS: a sustainable, pasture based farm that does not use commercial fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, growth hormones, nor GMO crops. Sustainablity is accomplished by rotational grazing of cattle and sheep across all acreage on the farm. They have beef, eggs and honey for sale!

BORDINE FARMS: finished for the season! Thanks for a great year Duane.
