May 5 - Great lettuce!
Post caption: "Overheard at the market yesterday: “You won’t find any lettuce as good as what the farmers have here. I’ve lived in the east coast and west coast, and I’ve gotten lettuce from farmers markets for more than 10 years. This stuff is the very best.”
May 8 - Mother's Day
Post caption: "Happy Mother's Day to all the moms that bring kids to the market (when they're being good and when they're not - you all rock), to all the vendors that are mothers, to the customers that are adoptive mothers to all in the market space.
Just to all the moms: Happy Mother's Day!"
May 21 - locally owned businesses
Post caption: "Overheard on Wednesday: "It's so impressive how many business owners you meet when walking around the market!"
We had a great time this past week with our artisan vendors, along with our full season and regular farm and food vendors.
Nearly ALL of them not only make the products they are selling, but are the owners of the business. They know their products, vouch for the quality, and care about what you are getting as the customer. Their pride and hard work shows.
Come out again this Wednesday and every week through November 2 for your farm fresh veggies, flowers, soaps, bread, coffee, cookies, pizza, desserts, pasta, vegan food, pet supplements and treats, meat, peanut butter, wine, and more!"
June 1 - sharing the love
Post caption: "Overhead at the market this past week:
"I love this market! You can get in and out quickly, and get just what you need. It's not too big! And I don't have to cook on Wednesday nights!"
"You choose your vendors very well here - all of them have such great products."

June 8 - a tough day!
Post caption: "Today's market wasn’t easy! Our farmers and vendors make their living by sharing their hard work with you each week. And we know you rely on their fresh produce, plants, and food products.
Thank you for coming out today, some of you in the pouring rain! We were all rewarded with this view after being wet and chilly at the start of the market. "
