It's the weekend before the 4th of July and certainly a time to celebrate the reason it's a holiday. The 4th is also known as Independence Day in commemoration of the the signing of the Declaration of Independence. I can't think of a more independent group of people than American farmers. They work the soil, they put their sweat and equity into making sure that the people of our United States of America get to enjoy the wholesome goodness that their hours of dedication provide. So, on this Independence Day weekend, we celebrate the privilege of being able to provide only the very best locally grown fruits and vegetables for your 4th of July picnic! :)

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.
