Week of August 3 & 6

Thank you to all who supported Customer Appreciation Day!  We had a surprisingly good turnout considering that it rained ALL morning long, and vendors and shoppers alike had smiles on their faces!  Huge thanks to our vendors who participated with samples, promotions and donations toward the event, those in our special tents who added so much to the atmosphere of the market, and (of course) our amazing, loyal customers - we wouldn't be here without you!

We enjoyed lots of activity Saturday including sauerkraut demonstrations and workshops, music from Dan Stonerook, beautiful art by woodworker Tyler Gaston, kids' activities with the Indiana Free Library, and cooking demonstrations and delicious samples by Josh Truitt of The Conventry Inn - zucchini salad, grilled green beans with peppers, and pork meatballs with kale pesto, just to name a few of the tasty, market-fresh dishes he prepared!

We also had the pleasure of drawing four winners to receive gift baskets of market goodies that included lots lots of fresh fruits and veggies, flowers, jam, coffee, meats, sweet corn, beauty products, and a great big cookie!  Congratulations to Rebecca, Colleen, Pao Ying, and Donna!

Wednesday was a great market, as well.  The IRMC mobile unit was on site providing free blood pressure screenings, and we saw our first peaches of the season - they only last for a little while, so get 'em while you can!

This week, we take a little breather after such a big week, and so can you - check out the Kids' Tent Saturday morning for yoga with Ed Stancombe of  Sunflower Yoga - open to "kids" of all ages.  Just some of the many benefits of yoga for children include improved self-esteem, concentration, and physical fitness...and it's fun, too!

We also highlight one of our returning vendors - Eight Maples Farm.  They specialize in tomatoes, green peppers, and several delicious varieties of watermelon, along with beautiful potted plant arrangements.  Stop in and say hello!

If you missed it, be sure to check out the amazing article about us in last week's Shopper's Guide!

See you at the market!
