Calling All Potential Sponsors: Your Name Here!
Farmers’ markets like ours do not live by bread alone (or by produce, coffee, home-made food items, and artsy gifts), and it is through the generosity of several of our local businesses that we can take care of our overhead costs (like insurance and advertising). In future issues, we will highlight the businesses that have helped us so far—and we invite others, including residents, to follow in their footsteps!If you are interested, our levels of sponsorship include the following: Angel ($500 and above), Patron ($200 to $499), Contributor ($100 to $199), and Friend ($50 to $99). Businesses also may provide gift certificates to their stores, which we will distribute to market customers in a random drawing each month. We also list our sponsors on our website.Next week: Focus on Gailes Violin, one of our Angel sponsorsCustom-made, Knitted Dog Sweaters!
You’ve probably noticed that the Hollywood Farmers Market has a table of beautifully made knits by north College Park resident Christiane Williams. In addition to knitted clothes for babies and catnip treats for cats, Christiane’s Designs is now offering custom-made sweaters for dogs!chris1If you want to bring your dog to the market, Chris will take measurements, you will tell her what color of sweater you want, and she will go from there. If you don’t want to bring your dog to market, just bring a sweater that he or she likes and that fits best.
While we don’t want to rush the summer, prepare now and order a custom-made sweater for your four-legged friends to enjoy when the weather gets cooler.Chris2

Buy Local: Reason 3

You help protect the environment. Farmers grow plants that can help recharge our aquifers and cleanse the air. Buying from a local farm decreases the distance that food travels, reducing the consumption of oil and carbon emissions nationwide.
When you buy local, you help to ensure that the benefits of our local farms help clean our local environment for many years to come. (Source: buy-local-challenge.com)

New Vendor: The Wood Doctor
Another north College Park resident has joined the market as a vendor. For the last few Saturdays, you may have seen Joe Raphel in his role as The Wood Doctor. Joe plans to be at the market every week to sell his hand-carved wooden products, cutting boards, rolling pins, and figurines. He also refinishes and repairs old furniture.

As he says, “Stop by. Let’s chat about specialty items I can make for you, refinishing projects you need done or whether that old table is worth being fixed and refinished.”
