Sorry, I missed the link. Here is the link to the market page.
Manchester Locally Grown: Manchester Locally Grown is open!
Wow! Happy summer! Have you noticed how our weather can swing from winter to summer in the space of a few days? (sometimes a few hours) I worked outside today in a sleeveless top, for the first time this season. For those who know me, I was not even wearing a jacket!
We are still in “winter mode” with lots of dried herbs & spices, and bath & beauty products; as well as baked goods & honey. Grundy Greens’ spring greens & Frontier Family Farm’s spinach are available in quantity. Don’t forget Wayne Diller’s popcorn for a healthy & delicious dessert. The daffodils are done at Dogwood Valley, but there are some new hanging baskets & houseplants, as well as a new perennial or two, on the market this week.
Check out our market offerings this week here: http://manchester.locallygrown.net/market/index .
