Market update 6/23

Hey y’all,

If the weather today follows suit with the last few days, it looks like we’ll have a pleasantly cool (if muggy) afternoon in store. The vendors will stick around even if it happens to rain, so don’t let the ominous clouds deter you, unless it’s lightning. (Just think of the rain as a momentary cool-off!) So stop by Canterbury Episcopal between 3 and 6 p.m. to load up on groceries and hear some homegrown live music.
It’s that time of year again – time to check out where our vendors do their magic! RSVP for these farm visits and join us to check out your favorite Homegrown Alabama growers and producers. We will have between 4-8 spots per trip so email homegrownalabama@gmail.com to hold your spot! Homegrown officers will provide transportation; all you have to do is show up and enjoy your morning or afternoon.
The first three visits of the season will be:
1. Saturday 6/25 (Montgomery)
AA Creamery, Bubbles Bailey
2. Sunday 6/26 (Brent)
B&S, Lar-Ren’s
3. Monday 6/27 (Tuscaloosa)
DCGP, Urban Herbwife, Snap Decisions
We hope to see you there with us!
