Can it be? Is summer finally here? If the forecast is to be believed, we will be having banner weather all this week ~ just in time to celebrate National Farmers' Market Week! Join us to taste the local difference and be a home grown food lover. Our musical entertainment continues with Melissa Welke on Wednesday and Craig Cottrill on Saturday. Also on Saturday, Katie from Between the Covers will be on hand to talk about gardening, farming and cooking books that you can pick up at our very own local bookstore. For those folks who have been asking, our new market bags will be available for purchase starting on Saturday, we think you are really going to like them! Your purchase not only directly benefits the market by increasing our budget for other market additions, it helps keep the use of disposable bags down...something you'll be seeing us focus on even more in the next couple of weeks. Watch for our "Just Say No to Plastic" initiative. We'll have posters, fliers and non-plastic options starting soon. And don't forget, along with our regular website and our twice weekly Facebook updates, you can find mini-interviews with all of our vendors and snippets or our musical guests on our YouTube page (linked on our FB page) and recipes on our Pinterest page (also linked). If you're a Twitter user, follow us at hsmarketmaster for early morning tweets about the newest and freshest things from that day's market. What a great summer it has been for our fifth year downtown!
