It’s hard to believe that we’re rolling into the middle of August this Saturday. Sweet corn, peaches, and tomatoes are at their prime. And it’s time to start thinking about canning and preserving – capturing summer’s flavors so you can visit them again on a cold winter’s day. But in the meantime, there’s plenty more of the market season to savor.
There’s no doubt that it’s been a hot, steamy summer – not to mention a strange, stressful one. But that hasn’t stopped y’all from shopping local every Saturday. And we know it’s not always easy. We see you donning your masks, keeping your distance, standing in long lines… but still smiling and sharing a laugh with your favorite farmer. Thank you for that. Thank you for showing up, week in and week out. We see you walking the market, your face masked and your arms loaded with bundles of fresh food and bright bouquets of flowers, or sometimes a single, joyful sunflower. When we see you we see kindness, we see caring and we see the love of community.
We look forward to seeing you again this Saturday… and all through the Fall. Click HERE to read this week’s e-update.
