The Year in Review

The sun popped out on almost every Market day of the year.. Unfortunately, the last day of 2019's season was very wet. No thunderstorms came through as was forecasted, but a light to medium rain fell until 6pm. Then the clouds parted and the evening was clear and dry. Too bad the good weather didn't arrive a few hours earlier.

A bunch of regular shoppers came out with umbrellas and ponchos. They picked up the usual goodies and said "Have a Happy Winter" to our farmers and bakers. Everyone enjoyed the season and looks forward to next year.

In the past few weeks of the season, The Pasture Stand joined the Market with frozen organic pasture raised chicken, eggs, and honey. Kevin plans to come back next year.

We missed Lori and Scott of Timber Buck Maple Farm. Family challenges prevented them from spending the full measure of time needed to take care of large gardens and the flock of 70 chickens. They hope to be able to attend next year.

Kim of Clover Meadow missed the last day. She is recovering from her accident on the farm. Wes and Kim always enjoy showing-off a baby goat and their goat milk products.

Bev of GG Bakes is back on her feet after a prolonged recovery from knee surgery. Denise and Gina missed a bunch of weeks at the beginning of the season as they looked after their mom, but they were delighted to attend the Market for the last 2/3 of the season.

Coralie, Ali, Betsy, and Dave of Sunscape and Larry of Farm Boy Products all had a good season, and they enjoyed all the interactions with new and regular visitors to the Market.

Big thanks are due to lots of volunteers and Church staff who helped with coordinating, opening, closing, managing SNAP EBT, and photographing the Market.

Big thanks are also due to the musicians and the community groups that helped to round-out the Market experience for everyone!

Here are a few pictures from the 2019 season.
