News From The Market
Here’s what’s in store for May 13th
It almost feels like spring has begun, those few days of sun give us hope… just in time for the last Spring Market this coming Saturday May 13th in the garden at St Johns Church 9:30-12:30. We will be there rain or shine!
If the weather is not co-operating Flour Power will be in the Church basement and there will be other vendors in Powell Hall adjacent to the main building… plus all of our hardy farmers outside! There will be music with Crimson Sky…. and lots of vendors with wonderful local veggies, plant starts and goodies for your table.
