SFM Newsletter May 15th

It’s the middle of May.. how is it possible that we had freezing temperatures this week?  I urge you to stand in support of our local farmers.  This year has been a doozy with so many variables at play.  We tend to think that farmers will figure it out and be ok.  They are incredibly resourceful but, they need our support.  Thank you for making the commitment to be a part of this farmers market community and to support our local sustainable small farmers.
