FAMILY- AND KID-FRIENDLY
It’s also the fourth week of our special series of Family Friendly events. We have three activities planned for our young guests today.
  • Clean Communities will conduct a recycling craft project for kids
  • Pemberton Gardening has planned a Potting for Kids (and adults) event
  • Love for Christina will paint kids’ faces and run a lemonade stand (both for donations)

MARKET DAY WEATHER
As usual this time of year, there’s a chance of scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon. With luck, they’ll scatter around us, but not on us. 🙂

NEW SITE PLAN LAYOUT
Please pay attention to the new site plan below. Instead of spreading out, let’s “circle the wagons” and create a smaller, more intimate, livelier atmosphere centered on the music stage. We’re adding some picnic tents at the “front,” and putting vendors on both sides of the lane, facing each other. I’ll need your attention and cooperation when you arrive to make the new plan work.
MARKET TABLE
Small, single-product vendors are having a hard time doing enough sales to justify the expense of coming to the Market while we build a steady customer base. To make sure we have enough variety to keep people coming back, the Market is selling Davidson’s Exotic Mushrooms, Wild Flour Bakery breads, and Mr. McGregor’s fruit pies from the Market Table.
PURPOSE OF THIS POST
This post is not for the general public. It’s for the benefit of Market participants. We have a facebook page and are building an email list to communicate with Marketgoers. You’ll get your news here; you’ll receive weekly email with a link to a new post at this blog for announcements and the site plan for the week.
