The market will be at its usual spot under the 200 plus year-old Burr Oak tree in the church�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?s yard. Jim Hughes, Minister, Forest Hills UMC, explains, �??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?As with previous seasons, it is important that The Forest Hills UMC Farmers Market continues to be unique in that everyone who is involved again this year is giving back to the community. For example, our church supports all things local, so we do not charge our vendors to participate. Instead, growers are asked to donate portions of their fresh produce to Feed America First, a local hunger relief organization.�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?

�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?To extend the idea of giving back to the community, a new group called �??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?Friends of the Market�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½? is being developed for area residents.�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?Leigh Ann Pettus, Market Organizer stated. �??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?However�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?, she said, �??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?the best way to support this community endeavor is for everyone to make sure the market is a part of his or her Saturday morning routine.�??¢?¯?¿?½??¯?¿?½?

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT THE MARKET!

I consider myself an expert on farmers' markets (others respect my knowledge and experience with markets also). My close working relationship with this market allows me to rate it as being one of the very best there is. Thank you, Dr. Haddox
