More Rain!! Happy Earth Day Everyone!!  Hard to believe that our Earth Month Celebration at the market is coming to an end.  We challenge you to make a lasting commitment to this planet that we live on.  As they say.. there is no planet B.  I know it’s daunting but, if we all do everything we can to work towards a zero footprint community and life style, it might just become the norm instead of an exception.  We need everyone on board for this one!  Shopping farmers markets and supporting local farmers and businesses is huge!! Make farmers markets a part of your weekly routine.    PS.. PLANT A GARDEN!! We’ve got edible veggie plants and herbs!!!
