We need your comments!:
This summer we received a grant to cover three extra tents and some of the foods for sampling. Now we need your feedback. These tents were used to create a place to relax at the market, fill-in tents for vendors, where a few demos took place this season.
The markets new chess set was placed under the tents on hot days and music was preformed under the tents. We also used the tents during the kids art program, so if you used the tents or not but like the idea and will use them in the future markets or just want to comment on the addition, come by the information tent and write on our comment board.
We also cooked and handed out samples of foods this year and would like your feedback on that, email@example.com
Also this Summer and Spring:
We asked some of the vendors and they did do demos on Transplanting with Joel Daeschel from Cedar Grove Nursery. How to raise chickens for income with Ken Baltz from K&J farms. How to raise pigs for income and fun with Frances Deters. Frances brought in one of her piglets to show and play with!
If you like these demos and want more scheduled for next season, let me know at the information booth.
Los Alamos Farmers Market runs 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Thursday through the end of October, at the Mesa Public Library parking lot. Take home the harvest!
