Squash the Heat with us today, 6/2!

Hi everyone!

I am excited to tell you–if you haven’t already heard–that we have dubbed today the day to “Squash the Heat” at the farmers market. There will be squash everywhere!! Special squash-themed children’s activities will include a squash-stomping bucket, squash-stamping cards, make-your-own squash friend, and squash necklaces. Grace Aberdean Habitat Alchemy will sponsor a chef demo booth each week this month, including today.

Stop by the Homegrown info tent to pick up a copy of the first edition of our newsletter. This month’s edition includes some terrific squash recipes, updates about the market, and a list of vendors and their products. We’ll begin publishing these each month and will print a limited number to distribute. The info will also be posted on our blog (but not till later). We also have some beautiful hand-printed Squash the Heat posters that we’ll sell for $2.

Grace Aberdean’s First Friday event tomorrow night (search “Grace Aberdean Habitat Alchemy” on facebook) will feature hors d’oeuvres provided by Homegrown Alabama. Stop by 2124 9th Street between 7 and 9 p.m. for food, drinks, plenty of artwork by locals, and music by Brice Miller and the Mahogany Brass Band.

See y’all, and don’t let the heat scare you away! We’ve got plenty of shade to go around.
