Saturday Market Newsletter! Market Open November 6 from 8-12!

November has finally brought some cooler days!  And that first frost means that the buckets of flowers and other market favorites may soon be disappearing from the tables… (of course the winter will bring its own favorites to the tables!)

So definitely come by this Saturday while we enjoy the abundance of fall for a while longer!

Read the Newsletter for Saturday November 6 to find out what is fresh at market!

Vendor Highlight: Bonlee Grown Farm!

Meet Bonlee Grown Farm!

This is Bonlee Grown Farm’s 21 year at the DFM, and they were one of the original 10 vendors, selling a variety of jellies and jams!  They now also sell eggs, succulents, geraniums, and a variety of prepared items easy to store through the winter!  They have expanded to 4 greenhouses and 4 plots since they began and also have sheep! They heat the greenhouses with wood and use the ash on the garden beds to help promote soil health!
