And That’s All Folks

Hello faithful market goers,

This is it- we’ve been counting down- our last market is here. We weren’t going to let the weather get us down last week by ending the market during a rain storm and our fingers are crossed that the weatherperson is right about a beautiful Thursday afternoon coming our way. It’s our tradition to spend our last market by celebrating Dia de los Muertos, a Mexican holiday where we celebrate those who have passed before us. The last market is always the best because we go all out. There will be an altar, created by the community (marigolds everywhere) open for anyone who wants to bring photos or an item that represents someone who has passed. We’ll have a labyrinth there for those who want to walk through it and have time to reflect. We’ll be serving chocolate caliente (hot chocolate) and pan de muerto (day of the dead bread) as well to fill your bellies with something warm.

AND all our vendors are coming to end the market with a bang! We’ll have Blue House Farm, Farmageddon, Fly Girl Farm, State Street Honey, Pie Ranch, Left Coast Grass Fed, Steadfast Herbs, and Open Eye Creations! On top of that we have our bike repair booth as usual, DJ Larry Trujillo spinning vinyl, and the resource conservation district coming as well. It’s going to be a full house people!!

A big thank you to Puente for hosting the market. Thank you to all sponsors/donors of the market- especially TomKat Ranch and POST. Thank you Cindy Simms and Kate and Jeff Haas for letting us use your space. Thank you to all of you that came and supported your local farmers, artisians, and musicians. Thank you to the farmers who made it out to sell to us every week. Thank you to those who made the market such a beautiful community gathering. It’s such a privledge to work and live and be part of this community. Just thank you to everyone!

So Thursday. You know the deal. See you there. Enjoy your winter. Don’t forget about us- we’ll be back again in June.

Signing out,

Your faithful market manager.
