This Wednesday - Market and Music

Wednesday Market

Order online through Monday 7pm.  Pickup and shop on Wednesday 5-7pm.  Everyone is welcome to use the online ordering system - its a great way to see what is available as the growing season moves forward.  And when you order, you help our producers know better how much food to bring.  That said everyone is welcome to just show up and enjoy being in the company of our local food producers that are happy to talk with you about their growing methods and their hopes and dreams.

This week, we'll also enjoy the tunes of Bailey Williams.

Change to Board of Directors monthly meeting

At the last meeting, the Board of Directors agreed to change the time of meetings to the Fourth Tuesday of every month.  Meetings will be held 6:00 - 8:00.  

Remember - the Board always reserves the first 10-15 minutes for Member-owners to have a word.  If you have questions for them - this is a great time.  Other than that, we welcome Member-owners to observe meetings anytime.
