And then there were three
It's remarkable how fast things change, how quickly time passes, how what once seemed like a permanent feature suddenly shows signs of ending. We're talking about the Farmers Market, of course.That Saturday way back in mid-May when this 26th season began was almost as cold and gray as some of these recent fall days. But instead of denoting an end, the chill of spring signaled so much to come. These are precious days at the market because you feel that they signify an end, not a beginning. So don't waste a minute in getting down to Riley Park before our farmers and artisans and vendors and volunteers are gone till next year.
This Saturday, in addition to the freshly harvested produce that has taken on a distinct feel of autumn, you'll find master gardeners to answer your questions about how to clean up the garden and what to look forward to planting next year. The Farmington Community Library will be doing its last shift at the Little Sprouts tent. And don't forget to fill out a free raffle slip for our wonderful weekly market basket, filled to the brim with donations from farmers, artisans and vendors alike.
Stillt to come: Our Haunted Market on October 26. Yes, it will be our last one of the summer, but we'll so much fun we'll hardly realize the season has ended. Besides, we'll be back before you know it. See you at the market!
