Last Saturday was quite a day for many of our farmers. The rain (storms) proved to be a wee bit more than many of our non vegetable farmers could handle. Dried herb seasoning, pimento and beer cheese and wine bottles do not fare well in the pouring down rain! What a shame, because it was our Back To School Day and we had a bunch of insulated lunch bags to give away. Guess what...our fruit and veggies farmers stayed on during the rain and they had plenty to hand out to the crowds that showed up once the sun came out. :) If you missed out on a lunch bag, chances are we might have a few left!
Don't forget that just because school has started and the pools have closed...that does not mean that the market has closed. We are still open and still growing strong! Many customers have asked how long we will be open for the 2013 season. We'll be here to bring you nothing but the best homegrown that the area has to offer through the last Saturday in October...October 26th!
Here's just a bit of what you'll be able to find at our markets tomorrow...

We'll be set up in the beautiful tree lined parking lot of Pedal the Planet and Fast Signs, right next door to the Glenn Auto Mall on Richmond Rd. It's just a hop, skip and a jump outside of Man 'O War Blvd. Parking is right there so you don't have to drive around hunting for a spot to park. The parking lot is also paved and that makes it very stroller and wheelchair friendly!
