Thank you for supporting our local small farmers especially now when they need you most.  The challenges of extreme weather events have had their toll. Thank you for your part in participating in our local food system

 

With mask recommendations still 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.

We can’t wait to see you this and every Sunday!
