Fill up on food and community at the market
This time of year, our farmers market feeds us in so many ways. Walking down the aisles, you’ll quickly notice that they’re filled to the brim with fresh, healthy foods, faces of friendly neighbors, and lively music. Bask in the August bounty on Saturday and Tuesday this week, and fill your bags with peppers, eggplant, bread, melons, yogurt, potatoes, fresh herbs, honey, and much more.
We are so grateful for the community involvement and investment that has helped us reach our 10th season. If you love your market and want to give back, consider joining our Advisory Committee. Read on for more information and the application flyer.
