PREVIOUSLY AT THE MARKET

Last week was July 4th. The Market was closed.

The previous week was a bit rainy, but it was a gentle rain that cleared out by 6 pm. A lot of neighbors walked or drove over with umbrellas and rain coats!

The rain was not too bad at all.

It is kind of fun to go shopping in the rain; especially when the farmers have tents.

Lots of produce is coming in from the fields now that summer is finally here.

The local librarians gave away a bunch of books.

The musicians and the shoppers had a grand time!

A NEW KIND OF COFFEE BREW

Did you know coffee is the #1 source of antioxidants for most Americans? Come meet Moonshot Brewing a health-focused, coffee and tea brewing, start-up out of RIT. They've invented a new technique to make coffee and tea, unlike anything you've ever had - it's not bitter, not-acidic, and has double the antioxidants compared to traditional drinks! Get free tastings of this new specialty coffee and tea!

You'll learn the science behind how these drinks are prepared and why you might want to make more room for them in your diet. Moonshot Brewing will make you rethink what you know about the world's most consumed drinks.

This week, Moonshot will be offering free samples and plenty of explanations!

LAWN SIGNS

Lawn signs are a very important part of our advertising. We have a bunch available for the season!

Ask to host a lawn sign or two!

On every Wednesday, post one or more in front of your house, or help to post them along the major streets to remind everyone to stop by the Market!

Ask for one, or several. Join your neighbors. The more the merrier! There is no such thing as "too many".

Contact the Lawn Sign Coordinator!
