Welcome the Colors of the Summer Market!
Now that Mid-July is here and the growing season is in full swing the market is gaining color every day! The luscious reds of strawberries, the yellows and greens of gorgeous summer squash and zucchini, the deep purple of kohlrabi and the vibrancy of our customers fill the market each Saturday from 8am – 1pm and Tuesdays from 3pm – 7pm.
Early birds are welcome to join us at the market at 8am this Saturday for Yoga with Billy (Elizabeth) Harness from the YWCA. Then enjoy the colorful market sights and smells with your neighbors, learn more about reducing waste from the Master Composters, join Martha for the Second Saturday Activity and so much more! Stop by Tuesday for dinner from Tollefson’s Family Pork, and pick up your weekly produce, bread and more.
Thanks to everyone who has made our composting program a success thus far. Keep up the great work and don’t forget – food and paper scraps in the compost bin! If you are interested in helping us implement the program, email us at email@example.com

Food comes in and goes out. And now ! recycling of all sorts happens. This Second Saturday from, 10:00 until noon, celebrate the new-this-season recycling efforts by creating some recycling games, making something from “trash,” and sorting it all out !
