June 5th and June 8th market preview

It's just been a couple of days since our season opener at the market, yet numerous individuals have stated their excitement for this Wednesdays market day! I think once community residents had their first taste of the 2013 market, they just cannot wait to continue buying locally! A special treat this Wednesday is the first appearance of the Home Made Ice Cream Express truck at the market.  So come on out for ice cream and of course fresh produce, flowers, goodies, and local art from all the vendors at the market!

What will be at the market this Wednesday and Saturday (unless noted otherwise):

3 Ponds Farm:  rhubarb, herbs, lettuce, mint, strawberries
Country Bread Barn:  bread, rolls, cinnamon rolls (Saturday only)*
