Urban Farmers Market---it's about feeling good!

Well, we've all had a week to think about our wonderful farmers market that we coordinated last weekend. The event was everything we'd hoped and planned for---A place for everyone in the community to come and learn more about healthy cooking, gardening, eat and buy delicious food and have fun! Our cooking demonstrations were great and all incorporated produce from the community gardeners stands. The crowd also commented on how they were pleased with the diversity of vendors, AmyD, Wholly Craft, Pattycake, RadDog and Snowville Creamery.The next farmers market will continue to feature our local chefs and urban farmer-superstars! I photographed the event and there was an overwhelming theme in the comments about the market...."It was nice to see people, talk, the produce and flowers were beautiful, the cooking and garden demonstrations were informative and it was fun." That is what community gardening should have at it's core, enjoyment, feeling good, connection to the people in your neighborhood and good food! See you at our next farmers market, where we will learn more about cold weather crops, new recipes and vermiculture! I have included portraits of the folks that attended the market and some of our wonderful produce.
