CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR BASKET #2 WINNER for SEPTEMBER! Warm Fall congrats to Lois Schklar! She managed to load up her bike with the bounty and off she rode! Nice.
October draw is on. To be eligible just spend $20 or more at market and you can enter. Here's how it works....
The vendor will offer the entry slip to eligible customers. Next, clearly write your email address on the back and place it in the official entry box at the organizers tent. If the vendor has over looked a slip for you, because they do get busy, come on over to the organizers tent and for one and/or if your spending is shared over a few vendors, not to worry, a volunteer will 'eyeball' your market shop to verify.
The final draw of the season is Oct. 25th. Baskets must be accepted as presented and picked up at a pre-arranged time on Nov. 1st - the last market day (!). Winning basket cannot be transfered forward.

WALKING YOUR BIKE THROUGH THE MARKET - PARKING YOUR BIKE SHOPPING AT THE MARKET
We know it's uber convenient to bring you bike with you right up to the stall. But it's not always the safest approach - seen many a bike topple over in crowded stall area, there's lots of small people around and we don't want anyone to get hurt from shopping at a farmers market - yikes. Simple solution, just lock up your wheels, lay it down on the grass or with the kick stand or LEAN it agains a mature tree. You bike will be fine. Thank you!

LEAVE A BAG / TAKE A BAG PROGRAM starts this season.
To further our commitment to our environment, we will be implementing 'leave a bag/take a bag' for FREE. Which means, any extra clean re-useable shopping bags (paper handled ones are good too!) that you have at home (we know you have some) bring them to market for others to use. If you forget your bag one time, help yourself to a bag. Return it, keep using it. No worries.
Please only donate CLEAN bags, especially free of pet hairs re: people with allergens. Thank you.
