We are all looking forward to a nice spring day at the market.

There will be plenty of produce, meats, breads and baked goods, goat cheese and tamales. Also we have a great variety of plants and herbs for your spring planting.

The craft area will include Earth Thyme, Heavy Metal Milkman and Pottery by Tim Roberts.

Music by Ed Snodderly.

Donation request: do you have white plastic grocery bags? We are gathering our supplies for the July 4th float and are in need of white bags. You may drop them off at the information booth on Saturdays for the next few weeks. We thank you.

See you at the market.
