What's at the Farmer's Market?
TC Smith will return, as will Coley Produce. Sandra, the egg lady will be back and so will Karen, the local honey lady. We will welcome Bridgette, our new soap vendor, and Rodney, who sells peanuts and pork skins will return, as far as we know!
Please come down to the market to support these people who work so hard to grow their produce and tend their bees and chickens, so that we will have access to their local products. Please keep the farmers in Eastern North Carolina, their families, their crops and their animals in your prayers. Florence took her toll on these people, leaving behind devastation and sadness for many.
Today, the market will welcome a new vendor, Soaps.io, quality handmade soaps.(www.soaps.io). Bridgette hand-makes artisan soaps, bath bombs, lotions and more, right here in Kinston. She’s been making soaps for over 15 years.
She moved to Kinston with her step-father just three weeks before the hurricane hit! Bridgette looks forward to meeting you at the Farmer's Market. Stop by and say hi. There will special Farmer's market discounts on her bath goodies. Love the skin you are in!
