What’s at the Farmer’s Market?
There will be no vendors at the Farmer’s Market from now until strawberry season, which will be in April. Rodney, the Pork Skin Man, will be open randomly on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday. You will be able to tell when he has pork skins by the signs he puts on Vernon Avenue and other places around town.
Hope all of you will have a healthy, happy and prosperous 2019, and sincerely hope that it will be a year of no floods and just the right amount of rain. This year has been a tough one for our produce farmers, so please support them all you can in 2019.
Can't wait for those delicious strawberries and asparagus! See you in April.
