It’s the first day of a new farmers market. We are all excited and hope you are too! The Grimm Brothers, the vendors and the market managers are all ready for you, the community to come visit, support and enjoy the farmers market today and throughout the season. We hope you come and enjoy meeting the vendors, making purchases and taking home  local, seasonal home grown, home made foods and handmade a items. Grab a bite to eat, enjoy a beverage, listen to live music and soak in the great weather we have been enjoying. As the season progresses the vendor list will grow and evolve as the produce seasons change and the vendors settle into a schedule. We encourage you to come as often as you can and meet the vendors each week. Take home some local goodness, support local small business and stay engaged in your local community.

I will be sharing informational and educational (hopefully entertaining and interesting) blogs, articles, recipes and inspirational stories throughout the season. If you have any questions about local, seasonal, sustainable, restorative, conventional and/or other farming or production methods, please let me know. I will do my best to follow up with the information you are looking for and asking about. I look forward to the 2018 Point Labaddie Farmers Market season.

See you at the market!
