November 16th - 25th2012

Ah, Thanksgiving....a time to relax, spend time with family and friends, and reflect on the things that bring us joy and comfort in the world. Don't stress about the food prep - avoid the last-minute grocery store rush and stop by the Public Market this weekend to pick up some fresh organic sweet potatoes, local wine, apples for pies, or a gift for your host!
