Vol. 3 Issue 1 – WE ARE BACK!!!

We hope everyone had a wonderful winter and are ready for the 5th year for the farmers market!  There are some changes that have been made to our layout but we still have our fantastic vendors this year. You have to come by to see.  Please note that our vendors who faced the shopping center are now in the shade.  So if you are looking for Dicot Farms, Waltz Farm or Valencia’s Produce do not fret.  They are still at the market, just in a different location.  🙂

This season we will continue our once a month $2.00 coupons (to be used the day of the market) for all customers! And on the second Saturday of each month we will offer a $5.00 coupon to be used on that day only at the market for all senior citizens (aged 65+) who are College Park residents.  Our first coupon day for seniors will be on May 13th.  All you need to do is present proof of residency and age to the Market Manager at the market table.

Some highlights for April 22nd:
The Lions Club will be at the market and will be collecting Clothing and Household items. This supports the Lions Community Outreach Foundation. Helping the Lions Club will help raise funds for their community projects while also supporting the National Children’s Center and keeping usable items out of the land fill! They will have tax receipts.

Did you know that April 22nd is Earth Day?
Aaron Springer, from the College Park Arts Exchange, will be at the market from 10 to noon with a Earth Day craft project for the kids.  The Sierra Club will leave brochures about the People’s Climate March at the Information Table.
