We've been so very blessed with gorgeous Market weather, right up until last Tuesday, June 9th. Our "rain or shine" policy was put to the test. Tents up. Tents down. Tents up! Soaked through and through (the produce was very clean that day), we stuck it out and were delighted that a few die-hard customers did, too!
They were rewarded with the likes of sugar snap peas, English peas, gooseberries, strawberries (the last of the season, I fear!), beautiful greens, onions, turnips, tomatoes, cucumbers, broccoli, garlic scapes, chives . . . and . . . happiness! Just look at Mr. Jim Finley!
We were honored to host the summer school students from Whittier Alternative High School, who were exploring volunteerism in our community.
So when we say we'll be there "rain or shine" you better bet that we mean it, and we still need YOU, our wonderful customers, to make it all worth while!
Mr. Bruce Bird, Ozark Prairie Apiary (and board member) braves the torrent.
