If you don't like the weather ...

boytoe-(1).jpgThe market got fit on Saturday, June 15, thanks to the fifth annual Fit as a Fiddle Health Fair, sponsored by Beaumont, Fresh Thyme and Essential Family Chiropractic. There was a little something for just about everyone: warmups led by a crew from Edge Fitness Center, a 5k run led by City Councilmember Sara Bowman, a one-mile walk with Dr. Joe Williams of Williams Family & Sports Medical Center, free blood pressure screening by Beaumont and a nutritious mason jar salad prepared by registered nutritionist Julie Stevens, representing Fresh Thyme. Even the weather co-operated, keeping the fitness folks cool with overcast skies. Not great conditions for farmers, but our growers are weathering these tough times, as market manager Walt Gajewski writes on the Welcome page.

This Saturday brings a taste of summer - strawberry shortcakes, with the berries and the biscuits coming from Kapnick Orchards, which operates a bakery on its farm. Also generating smiles will be the ventriloquist team of Boytoe & Lazareth (pictured). And it might be time after this soggy spring to get advice from the Michigan Master Gardeners. Things are looking brighter already. See you at the Market!
