October Newsletter

 

Hello all of you amazing farmers market supporters! We look forward to seeing you back at the market this Sunday as we gather for the second week of the October Harvest Celebration. Brought to you by farmers to farmers markets everywhere. For those of you looking for pumpkins and no time for the pumpkin patch..not to worry, we’ve got you covered!   You will find beautiful pumpkins and other amazing squashes in all kinds of crazy shapes, colors and sizes!

Now, you all know that if your looking for a fun, family friendly community event it’s here at the market every Sunday! There’s something for everyone. The past couple of weeks have been especially distressing. The farmers market has always been my place to let go and really take the time to connect with community. Whether you are a local or a visitor, we hope you will stop in and join us for awhile.. better yet, make the Sebastopol Farmers Market your weekly healthy habit.. body, mind and soul. It’s the best way to shake the blues!

October is the SLOW Food Eat Local challenge. Want to do something about climate change.. eating locally grown fruits and vegetables is part of the solution. Invest in local sustainable agriculture! Shop the farmers market! Want more information? Check out the Slow Food campaign.
