Market Update 9/29

Well hello, good morning!

It’s Thursday! The market will be ready just in time for a nice afternoon jaunt from campus, or home, or work or wherever you may be from 3 until 6 this afternoon. We will look forward to seeing you there.

This season we have been doing special events on the first Thursday of each month, and that’s going to change a little bit in October. Instead of the first Thursday, we’ll be having a fall festival-themed market on October 20, which is the last day of the market this year. Mark an extra special place on your calendar for this market–we are working with a public relations course to organize an exciting event for y’all. More information to come soon!

I want to let y’all know that we will not have a kids’ craft table again until that Oct. 20th market. It hasn’t disappeared for no good reason: we are a student volunteer-run market, and since school started we just haven’t been able to find anyone to run the table. We had a great time with the kids this summer, and we plan to bring back the kids table next summer.

And finally, an announcement! There’s a very exciting thing happening in Tuscaloosa on October 14: our very own food summit! Net Impact and Canterbury Episcopal Chapel are partnering to present the Tuscaloosa Food Summit on October 14. The summit will include panels and discussions about the complete cost of food, the role of farmers markets and community gardens in Tuscaloosa, food security, and more. Admission is free. To view the flyer and more information, look here.

See you this afternoon,
Andrea
