Saturday Market, July 23, from 8 AM until just after noon
NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS AND VENDORS: All items for sale are required to be locally grown or locally made. Our produce vendors are inspected quarterly. Check the display case or talk to Texadus if you have any questions.
Did everyone see the new marked lines and new numbers? I think this will help customers and vendors both. A caveat… our parking lot is city property so if we have a Banita Creek Leftover as we call them… we have to improvise. We canNOT have them towed. I appreciate your patience when we need to adjust due to that. Has everyone seen… and ENJOYED the new fans? I believe they are definitely helping. Did you know we now have available ice water for the comfort of our vendors and customers? See Booth 3B.
It is getting hotter. It is getting drier. Many of our produce vendors are fighting what can feel like a losing battle. They especially appreciate your support now. Many things will be in short supply… or less than pretty. Let them know… you are glad they are here and fighting the good fight.
