Vol. 3 Issue 29 – It’s been a great season!

The season will be coming to an end this Saturday.  Thank you to all of you who have been dedicated to our market every Saturday.  It’s been a great fifth season and it wouldn’t have been possibly without our dedicated customers and vendors.  We look forward to seeing you in April.

Raffle Time!

We have a lovely brand new Crock Pot (like the one pictured) that has been donated for a raffle.  Our vendors will fill the pot with items from our market.  Stop by the Market table and try for a chance at this with items from our vendors.
Some items from our vendors include a bracelet from Designed Naturally, one pound of coffee grains from Alcoba Coffee and beef jerky and cheese from Waltz Family Farm. A surprise veggie from Dicot Farm will also be part of the raffle.
Please note- the raffle will go from 9 until noon.  At noon a name will be drawn and the winner will be contacted.  All other names will be shredded and recycled.  The winner will need to be able to pick up their prize by 1pm.

Our criteria is that the items have to be hand made.  If you prepare food- we are looking for other prepared food vendors.  Lastly, we are looking for a bread vendor.  If you know of a local company that would like to sell bread at our market please stop by the market’s information table to speak with either the Market Manager or one of the Market’s Board members.
