Weekly Market Notes for April 11, 2013

Hello Market Friends: I received this message from the Akiwenzies: "Interesting, wet, windy weather will not keep us away", and I'm hoping the same will hold true for all of you dear loyal customers! Come on over and see us in this memorable April stretch. Unfortunately, but wisely, the Akiwenzies decided they shouldn't drive down today as the roads are going to be bad up their way.

Earth & City writes, "We had an awesome first week back at the market. Thanks to all the customers and vendors for welcoming us back so generously! Make sure to try our new Lentil and Walnut Burger with a delicious BBQ sauce and pickled onions for $6. Smoothies will be blended up again, this week the same as last: Pear, Apple, Kale and Ginger $5. Plus all our other treats. See you this Thursday!" Lisa and Cassandra

See you at the market!

Please consider signing and circulating this petition against another of Monsanto's destructive plans:
