Montavilla Farmers Market Winter Update
Don’t let the recent sunny days fool you—it’s winter! And, while we can all expect a lull from upcoming cold and wet weather, rest assured that it will not deter the Montavilla Farmers Market from cranking away behind the scenes. Here’s a quick look at some of what we’re working on.
This Sunday (Feb. 12) is the final Winter Stock Up Market. Make sure to come out and load up on all the great seasonal produce, meats, cheeses, baked goods, wine, and other great offerings. Follow this link to see a list of all the great products. Don’t miss out, it will be 16 short weeks until the official 2012 market kick off.
Speaking of our opening day, the first market of this season just happens to be our 100th market! Congratulations to all the customers, vendors, and community supporters that have helped to give the Montavilla Farmers Market longevity and vibrancy. Nicely done! In light of this historic milestone, we’re planning a festive day to celebrate future market shoppers—also known as the Montavilla community’s youth. Stay posted for more info on the upcoming fun, and make sure to note the June 3rd opening day celebration on your calendars.
Other big news: the Montavilla Farmers Market was awarded a New Seasons Grant to fund our Everybody Eats program through the 2012 season! We strive to make sure that our market is affordable to everyone, and New Seasons has been a valuable community partner in helping insure this happens. Huge thanks to them!
