Things are getting serious guys. October is here and that means we’re on the final stretch- only 5 markets left! People have been asking if we’re going to have another raffle and the answer is yes. This week and last raffle of the season. A prize will be raffled off at the end of every hour and more than one each time! Some of the prizes consist of an olallieberry pie from Duartes, a tour for two at Harley Farm, a gift certificate for the taqueria, a couple of keurigs (for you coffee lovers out there) and many more prizes. Everyone will leave feeling like winners.
We have a full line up this week. Blue House is still coming in strong with a very full booth with lots of variety- from beans, to tomatoes, to bouquets, to melons, to sweet peppers, to herbs- they have it all. Fly Girl’s zucchini production is up and they’re still bringing berries! I saw the flower arrangements the last two weeks that Fly Girl did for weddings using their own flowers and it’s truly amazing. Check out their instagram at flygirlfarm and see for yourself! Farmageddon is bringing delicious green figs, homemade applesauce, fermented green beans, tons of eggs, and broccoli. I bought some of that applesauce and it was delicious- that stuff is not easy to make! Coming back to enjoy the raffle is State Street Honey. Todd brings three types of local honey that makes my tea in the morning the right kind of sweet. Last, but not least, we have Monique with Open Eye Creations coming to sell her driftwood art. She has quite the selection now and it’s all beautiful.
One of our market sponsors, POST, will be making their last appearance of the season. We have a friend named Derrick coming to the market to teach anyone and everyone how to make different origami creatures (I was never good at that). He came and taught us last year and was very patient and a great teacher. Providing the tunes this week is the Pelican Duo. Rob Christian will be playing the stand up bass and Pel on the guitar. We always love having these local folks come and play for us.
Remember, only 5 markets left and that this is the last raffle. Don’t miss out on a chance to win a free Duartes Pie!!
See you veggie lovers this Thursday..
