Celebrate Father’s Day at the market on Saturday, June 15!

Happy Father’s Day to all of the wonderful dads at the market! As you celebrate the important role that father-figures play in your life, be sure to treat dad to the best local food in town. Whether you’re grilling, going on a picnic or eating at home, you’ll find the freshest produce, meat, cheese, drinks and more at the market. You’ll show dad how much you care when you pick up your meal ingredients from our local farmers. And don’t forget to treat dad to a delicious dessert, too! We hope you enjoy spending time with your loved ones this weekend and that you soak up the beautiful weather together.

Also, bring your toughest gardening questions tomorrow and chat with the Master Gardeners from 8:00 am-noon on the market lawn.

Finally, don’t forget you can re-stock on local groceries at the Wednesday Market every week from 3-6 pm. See you tomorrow!
