Market Updates
Vendor News
We know it's been a hot week, and tomorrow we have the
coolest day of the week on hand. A full market of vendors ready with piles of fresh produce, stacks of delicious pastries and breads, coolers full fresh cuts of protein and jugs of ice cold drinks await your arrival this Saturday.  It will be a pleasant 64 degrees when we open at 8am, and  shouldn't get above 85 before market ends at 1pm. We will have our water mister running down on the west end of Hancock St and complimentary ice water at our Information Booth. 

There was a watermelon sighting last week at Deep Roots Farm, and with summer's thick heat we expect the arrival of many more melons, eggplant and sweet and hot peppers from all our growers in attendance. 

While your stocking up on summer's best, tomorrow is a the perfect day for a ice cold snack from Stellar Pop. Whether you like a seasonal fruit combo or coffee cocoa kick each frozen pop one is out of this world.

This Saturday will be the second to last for Dear Bike offering free bike repair at market. If you haven't had the chance to have your bike looked over by Ulysses make sure to roll it out in the next two weeks!

Back at market for the week are Dragonfly Forge, Ken & June's Hazelnuts, Leikam Brewing, Nossa Familia Coffee and Stone Barn Brandyworks. 

See you Saturday at the market!
