This weekend is our second “Feed the Carrot!” day of the 2015 market season, when we ask you to support the market with a cash donation. Your donation shows your love for the market, and helps it continue to grow and thrive. This is your chance to show your support! Make sure to take pictures, make posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, then tag them with #FeedTheCarrot to encourage your friends, family and neighbors to do the same.
Why should you donate to the market?
Vendor fees pay for less than one-half of the operating costs of keeping our market running. Passing on the full cost of the market operations to our vendors would cause prices to rise and be passed on to customers. But shoppers at the market can offset this cost by donating what you can, keeping the market as affordable and accessible as possible!
A link to our Facebook event can be found here – be sure to click attending and share it with friends and neighbors!
Don’t forget about FREE YWCA classes at the market each week! R.I.P.P.E.D is on Saturdays from 8:30-9:30am. Zumba is on Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30pm.
