Friends of the Market,
May is finally here and it’s almost time for the Grand Opening of the Independence Farmers Market at Town Park. Join us May 13th from 9am to 1pm for delicious produce, locally raised meats and eggs, fresh baked goods and beautiful crafts. There will be plants for your gardens, both ornamental and edible and the kids can plant seeds in eggshell cups. After the Market, walk across the street to the office warming party hosted by Grayson Landcare. Come see the new office and enjoy baked goods by the talented young cooks at the Grayson County Cate Center.
May 20th is the first of our monthly Fiber Days. Save the date, it’s every third Friday. We close out the month on the 27th with the Rooted in Appalachia Farmers Market Roadshow sponsored by Appalachian Sustainable Development. There will be kids activities, cooking demonstration and more and it’s all free!
The Independence Farmers Market is pleased to be able to accept Senior Farmers Market coupons this year and we continue to offer up to a $25 match for SNAP purchases for fruits and vegetables. It’s like getting FREE vegetables and fruit. We are able to offer the Double Dollar program because we are a member of the Wholesome Wave National Nutrition Network.
Hope to see you there and be sure to bring a friend.
