PREVIOUSLY AT THE MARKET

Last week, we had rain. It was not a thunderous rain, but a constant light rain till about 5 pm. Then it slowed down and stopped by about 6.

A lot of neighbors and shoppers grabbed umbrellas and stopped by to shop for vegetables, berries, eggs, pastries, soaps and balms, to pickup some library books, and to talk, and to listen to music.

We'll have some pictures to share in next week's newsletter.

Remember that the Market is CLOSED this week on July 4th. Happy Independence Day!
