SFM Newsletter September 5th

Hello and welcome to the Sebastopol Farmers Market Community!  We hope that you will find time to visit us on this busy Labor Day weekend.  We also hope that you will consider all of the amazing farm workers who are dedicated to growing and harvesting food.  Please take time to show them the respect and gratitude that they deserve.  It’s not an easy job and often the conditions are less than ideal.  With much love and gratitude to those who grow the amazing food that we eat.. please join us in supporting them as essential members of our community.

 

With new mask recommendations in place, please be sensitive to those in our community who are taking extra precautions.  If you don’t have a mask, please give them space.
