The first day of the 2017 season on 5/20 is coming right up!

Come by to visit with many of our wonderful returning vendors: Beechwood Orchards (specializing in fruit--strawberries are in now!), Berry Patch Produce (veggies galore), Big Sky Bakery, Davidson Exotics (mushrooms), Firehouse Donuts, Good Spoon Soups, Kneehigh Farm (still offering their wonderful CSA along with plenty of gorgeous vegetables), Market Day Canelé (delightful canelé, tarts, caramels, and cucarachas!), Summer J Artisan Ice Pops, and Whiskey Hollow Maple Syrup (preserves too!). 

And please welcome some of our new 2017 sellers: Greenstreet Coffee (coffee by the cup and bag, and ground for you if you like), Holy Myrrh Bearers Church (with their homemade pierogis), Ironstone Creamery and Farm (pork - sausage and charcuterie, chicken, eggs, turkey, lamb, veal, as well as milk, yogurt, butter and other dairy products), Natural Landscaping (coral bell varieties in planters, as well as other dwarf varieties/low maintenance plants), Tooth of the Lion Farm & Apothecary (farm-based organic grower selling herbs, tinctures and tea blends), and Laura Twilley from Wyldcraft (mini themed gardens, salad pots, cards, and tea towels)! 

Two favorite returnees: Chez Yasmine food truck with their delicious international fare and warm and friendly service; and Marc Schmidt's Waffles for Tourettes, scientifically proven to be irresistible. 

Kids' activity will be making Allium flowers from Q-tips. This activity will be led by Jr. Girl Scout Troop 5557 and their troop leader, Dianne Hull (along with 2 of our stellar SHHS volunteers). One of the tasks the girls need to accomplish to get their "Simple Meals" badge is to learn about where food comes from by helping out at a market such as ours. Let's welcome them--and bring your little ones for flower-making! 

Our featured artist is Anita DiPietro of Anita DiPietro Designs, maker of exquisite and creative jewelry. 

We have 2 great musicians back on the docket, Pete Prown at 9:30 and Dave Fiebert at 11:30. 

And a very special activity: Chef Demo at 10:30, by citizen celebrity chef, Marty Spiegel, making Hungarian Mushroom Soup. Oh yeah - stop by to watch, learn, and catch a savory soupçon! 

See you all Saturday!
