We hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July! This weekend MOM’s Organic Market is having their Grand Opening event. The Hollywood Farmer’s Market will still be open but the parking lot may be a little more crowded. 🙂 Please be aware of parking restrictions.

Waltz Family Farm has a new supply of beef and pork. Make sure you stop by and see what Jay and Laurie have.

Yoga Heights DC will return this week and are at the market around 10:30 am. It’s a perfect way to start the day!
If you would like to contact our group of instructors please email yoga.hollywoodmarket@gmail.com or visit their website http://yogaheightsdc.com/

Upcoming weeks:

The Buy Local Challenge starts July 21! Are you ready to take the challenge? Find out more here: https://www.buylocalchallenge.com/

Why is it important to buy/eat locally grown foods?

Buying local is good for you, good for the local economy, and good for the planet! Buying from local farms helps you get products that are fresher, and have traveled much shorter distances overall from farm to fork. Plus, you’re supporting independent family farms which helps strengthen the economy.
The Animal Welfare Committee will return the week of July 28th for free microchipping for all College Park resident’s pets. A $20.00 fee for non College Park residents. If you have not had your pet microchipped, please consider doing so. This system has helped reunite animals to their owners.

Also on the 28th, Jazz Harpist, Patrice Fisher and her student Karla Williams will preform at noon. Check out Patrice’s YouTube page: www.youtube.com/ecoslatinos

Stone Hearth Bakery is looking for someone to sell their product at our market. If you know someone who lives in or near Fredrick and wants to help Stone Hearth please let Julie know.
Calvert Farm is looking for someone in the local area to help sell their produce. Farmer Pam has someone to drive the truck from Rising Sun but needs an additional hand to meet the staff member around 8am to help set up, sell and then take down at the end of the day. If you or someone you know who is trustworthy and a hard worker would like to fill that spot please contact farmer@calvertfarm.com.

Elated Harmony Massage Bus Update:
The bus has been masked, primed and painted- all in the heatwave. Shanice reports they will have a video up on their website soon and more details to follow.
Looking forward to the end result!
