WOW, what a great opening day! :) Our customers were thrilled to see us back and the farmers were happy to be able to bring their farm fresh items to the market! It rained a bit, but not enough to dampen the spirit of shoppers or farmers. Thank you all for making us feel so welcome in your neighborhood.
We had strawberries, eggs, zucchini, lettuce, bok choy, nappa cabbage, kale, swiss chard, rhubarb, asparagus, onions, potatoes, baked goods, pepper jams, fruit jams, herb seasoning, dried beans, homemade soaps, bedding plants, herb plants, veggies plants and so much more! And, next week seems like we'll have even more!
What a great start to our 2012 market season...we're excited about our “new to the Richmond Rd. location” farmers. It was unfortunate that the MillPond Center market could not continue due to a little problem with a certain grocery store chain not wanting competition. Oh well, that just means that our main location on Richmond Rd. will be much bigger and have more offerings with our “transplanted” farmers joining us! :)
Stay tuned for an update on what will be available this week...it's gonna be great!!!
