Success in New Location

New place, new feel, new potential. Our heads are buzzing with ideas for our new farmers’ market location. There’s lots of space- maybe a soccer game on the side? Stay tuned for what we come up with. More importantly- our thoughts and prayers are still with Cindy’s and her staff. We’ll continue to collect donations for them until the end of the famers’ market. (There’s only 5 more if you were wondering) Please spread the word about our new location- across from the church, a little farther down on Stage Rd (350 Stage Rd).

We’re going to have a full market this week. Lots of veggies. Our vendors will be Blue House, Fly Girl Farm, and Farmageddon. Pie Ranch will also be there. Steadfast Herbs will be bringing tinctures and Open Eye Creations will be bringing driftwood art.

The HMB Library will be coming to the market for children’s activities and they’re bringing a 3D printer! I hear it’s usually the kid’s favorite- I’m pretty excited myself. For music we have Nothing, but Fun coming down from the city to provide us some tunes. Bike repair will be at the market as usual, but it’s worth noting that Every won’t be at the market the next two weeks- so if you have a bike that needs to be fixed soon- this week is the week to do it!

5 more people. Come out and support the community! See you there.

 

We Love You Cindy’s

It’s been a devastating week for the South Coast. One of the hearts of Pescadero, Cindy’s, is no more due to a crippling fire. The farmers’ market crew and Puente has Cindy and her 19 employees in our thoughts and prayers.

“The market must go on!” says Airielle Love from Fly Girl Farm — and it shall!  The market crew has worked hard to figure out all the logistics to remain open this week. Our new location will be just down the road on the other side of the street at 350 Stage Rd. It’s the open lot where the market was held a few years back, directly across from the community church.  Huge thanks to stalwart community supporters Kate and Jeff Haas for the use of their space!  The plan at this point is for the market to continue at that location through the end of the season.

This week, the market will be an “in solidarity with Cindy’s” kind of market. We plan to have a book where community members can write their favorite memories at Cindy’s, an audio recorder if you’d rather speak your memory than write it, and we also will be collecting donations for all of her employees. We’d love it if the market was the place for the community to come together after such a tragedy- to lift each other up.  After all, the market owes its recent existence to Cindy and her generosity with using her space.  Thank you Cindy!

Our vendors will be Blue House Farm and Fly Girl Farm as well as State Street Honey and Open Eye Creations. Liz Gatt would be coming to provide child activities and Ziggy from Single Story View will be rocking out the new grassy lawn. Every and her bike repair station will also be present.

We hope Cindy’s gets rebuilt. We hope that Cindy and all her employees are taken care of. We hope all those who are affected are feeling supported and loved.

Come join us in continuing an important community tradition and standing alongside Cindy and her staff!

We’re with you, Cindy.

 

 

Tinctures and Pie at the Market

7 markets left Pesky people!

This week’s vendor lineup is as follows: Blue House Farm, Farmageddon, and Fly Girl Farm (melons, eggs, and flowers hooray!) We also have Finn from Steadfast Herbs coming to bring natural remedies such as tinctures, salves, and bath salts.

We have two people coming to take care of child activities. We have Pie Ranch’s Ms. Mona coming and also the HMB library bringing the button maker!

Music wise we have the Pelican Duo (Pel and Rob- locals) providing the tunes.

We also have free bike repair as always and the Puente health promoters coming to do blood pressure readings and talk about our upcoming Health Fair which is on October 2nd!

Fall is here and Dia de los Muertos will be here before you know it!

See you this Thursday !

 

Meat Coming to the Market

Week 15 means only 8 markets left. This countdown we have going on is really showing me how fast time goes by! Last week we had an overcast, gloomy day, but our local artists and kareokers brought us some sunshine to our little marekt. We’re thankful for you! I just checked the weather- this Thursday should be nice and sunny. Lets make the most out of these markets we have left together.

This week’s vendor line up is: Blue House, Fly Girl, and Farmageddon. It’s the second market of the month which means that Left Coast Grass Fed is coming to the market!! I’m in need of ground beef and skirt steaks…  Open Eye Creations will also be coming back to the market.

We have a first timer playing at the market. He goes by Falcon- some of you may know him because he lives here in Pesky- looking forward to being introduced to some new music!

Liz Gatt from La Honda will be coming and leading children activities. Every will be fully present taking care of your bikes as well (last week she was singing and dancing half the time leading karaoke)

 

You know the drill- see you Thursday at 3. Hasta Jueves!
