If you haven't seen, the Indiana County Farmers' Market is seeking an un-paid intern/summer volunteer to help with social media updates as well as on-site market tasks. This would be a great opportunity for a high school student looking to get more involved with the community, local foods, and who wants community service hours!!

Late posting means a short post, just wanted to give an update on what will be going on this week and next week at the market!
This Saturday in our Kid's Tent we will have free yoga for kid's of all ages thanks to Sunflower Yoga Studio, who is also our newest tent sponsor!
Next Wednesday, August 5, Chipotle Mexican Grill will be at the market distributing BOGO coupons, chips and salsa samples, and kid's activities. Here is a blurb about why they will be at the farmers' market:
Chipotle is once again teaming up with farmers’ markets to support the efforts of local growers, who will help the restaurant reach its goal of serving more than 25 million pounds of locally grown produce this year. Relying on this network of local farms within the mid-Atlantic region, Chipotle is able to serve ingredients, such as bell peppers, cilantro, red onions, jalapeno peppers, oregano and romaine lettuce, from farms located within 350 miles of the restaurants where it will be served. Chipotle’s use of locally grown produce is rooted in its belief that produce from local growers arrives at its restaurants closer to harvest, resulting in fresher, more delicious food. Supporting local farms also creates and sustains opportunities for small- and mid-sized farms in rural communities around the country.
