Berry Day a Big Success!

Our Berry Day for Market Sprouts (kids ages 3-12) was a big succcess! Sprouts were able to taste test strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries generously donated by Warnock Farm Market. The winning berry was the Raspberry (but Blueberries were a close second and were ahead up until the end). Kids loved getting free berries along with berry recipes they could enjoy with their families and a free plant start donated by Magic Garden. It was also our first day with our new Market Sprout Passports that kids could take around to various vendors and have them stamp their passport as they learned about market goodies.
We have some more fun things planned for this week's markets as well. Our Thursday market will be enjoying the musical talents of Daniel Mark Faller and the Working Poor. They play a great mix of alternative country, americana, and folk rock. They are based in the Quad Cities area of Washington and Idaho and play a mixture of original and popular songs. Sounds like a great time! Vendors will also be providing us with yummy cherries and berries again in addition to fresh produce and crafts.
Our Saturday market will be featuring our first annual Bike-a-Rama! We will have a bike expert from Joseph Hardware there from 12-1 pm to help young and old alike with any bike needs. It is a great opportunity for kids to bring their bikes and helmets and get them sized properly and have learn how to give their bike a checkup. And don't forget to check out this week's Market Sprout activity and great vendors!

This Week at the Market:

This week's Thursday Courthouse Concert Series presents Back From the Dead. So come check it out along with fresh berries, veggies, crafts, and eggs from local farms and craft makers. Weather sounds like it will be much better than last week so don't miss out!
Our Saturday market is Sprouts Berry Day! We will have fun activities for kids in our sprouts program to enjoy that involve berries. Nothing can beat that! Our Market Sprouts Program is for kids ages 3-12 that come to the Market Manager's booth where I get them signed up if they haven't already and they can then come to every market and receive fun goodies along with doing activities to teach them about local food and crafts. If they are already signed up, don't forget their farmers market bag to bring home all their goodies! We will also have music by Mark Lacey. It's a day that should be worth the drive or walk!
