Time to Get It in Gear

Farmers' Market
-TLW image

With less than 24 hours (by the time you read this) until Opening Day of the Farmers’ Market, it’s time to get it in gear.

Shake off any residual winter lethargy, dig deep and find that enthusiasm for good food and hard work…and move it!

It’s time to start the dance that is Market season. After 17 years, it's not hard to remember the steps...the rhythm of the season comes back naturally.

Each day of the week has its prescribed activities that must be completed in order to be ready for Saturday morning. Here are a few examples...

Every Saturday morning from now until Thanksgiving, we focus on selling the fruits of our labors. No matter the weather or our health (or our mental outlook).

Our livelihood depends upon those five hours.  Five hours. While that might not sound like much…it can be intense.  So…

Get ready!

Get set!


Here’s to a great 2015 Farmers’ Market!
It won't be long until the Market stand looks like this!

Hope to see you there! 

If you can't attend in person, "visit" us virtually HERE  Or check out the Market on  Facebook.


  1. Good luck with your Farmers Market season. In the UK Farmers markets tend to be very posh, expensive and don't welcome new sellers.

    1. Thanks!
      Our market would never be labelled "posh" and we'd LOVE some new sellers!

  2. If I lived anywhere near you would see me there every week Barbara.
    I thought it started today - hope you had a good lot of stuff to take and that the weather is kind to you both this week so that each week the produce gets more plentiful.

    1. And, we would love to have you, Pat!
      It looks like we will have a lot of stuff for this week. Here's hoping for good weather!

  3. May The Creator of the Universe rain down His blessings on this year's Farmer's Market for you and the other vendors and customers. A-MEN!
    xxoo, m & jb who wants to put her order in for two dozen organic mouse chops, tank yooo!

    1. Thanks, Maureen!
      message to JB: I'm SO sorry, but we're out this week. Do you mind your chops slightly "used"? If not, then I'm pretty sure Gus can handle the order. ;)

  4. omigosh - i love your recipe section, but i won't have time to try any until next weekend. best wishes for the weather there and a good market season. i do enjoy your blog. (i'm in northeast ohio, so it'll be awhile before WE have much local produce, lol. the snow's barely gone.) --suz in ohio
