Market Update – 8/18

Howdy,

Today is your last chance to visit the Homegrown Alabama Farmers Market before school starts! So if you’re considering hosting (or attending) a pre-school feast/shindig/soiree, today is the perfect day to stock up on all the right ingredients. New at the market this week will be G&G Farms from near Maplesville. They’ll come stocked with all kinds of fruit.

Just because summer’s almost over, that doesn’t mean the same for the market. This year we’ll run every Thursday until the end of October, October 27 being our last market of the year. Same time and place for the remainder of the season: on the lawn of Canterbury Episcopal from 3-6 p.m. So continue supporting local, family farms by attending the market throughout the fall. You make us smile every time you do!

Today is also craft day! Check out some of the awesome handmade art you can purchase at the market today:
