ALFN Local Food Club: Updates for Food Club tomorrow...
Hey there Community,
How are ya?
Some pertinent information about Food Club tomorrow:
1) The St. Patty’s Day Parade will be going on downtown. It doesn’t start til 1pm, but there may be some detours around the River Market. Plus traffic. Be safe and (I recommend) try coming early!
2) There is a wedding reception at the church, starting at 11am. The parking lot will be fuller than usual, and we’ll be sharing the kitchen with the wedding folk. As a result, the cashier’s table will be in the hall by the water fountains.
Do not let these changes to the average Food Club upset you! Consider them opportunities for adventure!
See you tomorrow.

Heirloom Living Market Lilburn: Great Market Yesterday
What a GREAT Market pickup we had yesterday! Thank you to all for supporting Heirloom Living Market through Lilburn Locally Grown! We are here to serve the community and love meeting and getting to know you!
Dabrielle and Bruce Wills from My Daily Bread Whole Grains Bakery joined us as “Farmers of the Week”! We had a GREAT time meeting new folks and sharing the absolutely fabulous treats, baked by Dabrielle with love and care and brought to share. I had ordered some Gluten Free Brownies that are the best brownies I have ever had! Who would have guessed that GF Brownies could taste so delicious? I also ordered some Spelt bread that, although is not strictly ‘wheat free’ is tolerable to my system — and boy am I glad I did! It is fabulous. These folks and their wonderful products are ‘top of the line’ and I cannot wait for them to return as Farmer of the Week so everyone can meet this dynamic duo that really do ’care enough to BAKE the very best"! Thank you Bruce and Dabrielle! When Market opens, please be sure and check out their wonderful offerings! We are so happy that My Daily Bread has become a part of our Heirloom Living Market Family!
A special thanks to Betsy Blankenship who worked tirelessly to set-up the Market display and help run the Market yesterday. She is a local Artisan — talented and very creative! Check her re-purposed Mason Jars — the Rosemary Candle Jar and the Peppermint Dishwashing Soap in jelly jars are so practical and make a nice addition to any kitchen. Speaking of kitchens, Betsy’s REAL job is actually designing the perfect, practical, all-you’ve-ever-dreamed-of kitchen! You can email her at email@example.com or call her at 678.468.8126 – Her company name is — Max’d Out Kitchen Design!
Market will open in the morning! Have a happy Friday!
