More Farmer’s Market craze
Thursday, 3-6:30 at Stage Fort Park! Don’t miss it! It’s not just food (as if delicious local food were not a sufficient reason to go…); there are also people selling cookbooks, pottery, and art; plus there are art activities for the kids, run by teens from Art Haven.
One of the things I like most about the Farmer’s Market is that the people who are selling things there are usually closely involved in the production of what they sell. That makes a world of difference; you can see that they are proud of what they are selling, they really know it inside and out, and they are convinced of its value. Their enthusiasm is contagious! And they often offer free samples. So, be forewarned: you are likely to spend more money than you planned to. But that’s OK, it’s supporting the local economy!
