Mid Season

We’re now half way through the market season. This week, Papa
Murphy’s of Gardendale will be giving out free pizza samples.
We’ll, also, have our sponsor, America’s First Federal Credit
Union with their mobile ATM unit. We do have Mark/Jane McKissack,
Tekog Apiaries, selling local honey; Adam York, of Backyard Kettle
Corn, selling his delicious popcorn; and our two young entrepreneurs,
Sisters Go Bananas, selling their chocolate covered bananas and sugar
free fruit popsicles; this will be their last week before going back
to school. The temperature is predicted to be a little cooler than
what we’ve been having. We look forward to seeing everyone. See you
there.

Ooops! My bad.

I forgot to mention that our young entrepreneurs Sofia and Savanna
Holliman, Sister’s Go Bananas, and will be selling their frozen
chocolate covered bananas and sugar free popsicles. Adam York,
Backyard Kettle corn, will be selling his delicious popcorn.

Great day ahead

For those that wish to have knives sharpened, Bill Woodard is still
recovering from gall bladder surgery and will be going through testing
for other health issues. If and when he returns, it’ll be posted
here. Last week, we welcomed Mark and Jane McKissack, Tekog Apiaries,
selling different flavors of honey. This week, we have Virginia
Brasher, Peaceful Acres Farm, selling spices. Our sponsor, America’s
First Federal Credit Union will have their mobile ATM available. Lucy
Siddiqui will be reading children’s stories at 11:30 AM, and the
North Jefferson County Republican Party will be having the Lowes bird
house kits for children to build from 10 AM to 12 noon. The Party will
be handing out information regarding the voting booth and seeking
membership; they will not be campaigning. We’ll be half way through
the season after this week, and we appreciate so many people
supporting the farmers and vendors. See you tomorrow.

We have honey

We have a new bee keeper and honey will be sold tomorrow. Our young
entrepreneurs, Sofia and Savanna Holliman, Sister’s Go Bananas, will
be selling their frozen chocolate covered bananas. They’re also
selling watermelon popsicles; some of their new goodies will be sugar
free. Adam York, Backyard Kettlecorn, will be selling his delicious
pop corn.
Bill Woodard, our knife sharpener, has some health problems and will
not be available for some time. If and when he returns, it’ll be
posted in the weekly message. Bill can use all the prayers one can
offer.
Tomorrow is predicted to be a hot day with a slight chance of rain in
the afternoon. We look forward to seeing the large amount of customers
since our new hours. We really appreciate you supporting our growers
and vendors. See you tomorrow.

Kettle popcorn for sale

Tomorrow, we’re welcoming back Adam York, Backyard Kettle Corn,
selling his delicious varieties of pop corn. Our two young
entrepreneurs, Sofia and Savanna Holliman, will be selling their
frozen chocolate covered bananas and fruit popsicles.
Judy Bee’s Honey and Berries will have their delicious blue and
black berries; sorry, they are no longer selling honey. We’re still
looking for a bee keeper to sell local honey; we’re, also, looking
for someone to sell fresh eggs. Lucy Siddiqui will be doing story
telling at 11:30 on the stage, and the children’s bouncy will be
with us until school starts in mid August.
For those of you that watched the Veteran’s Recognition, I hope you
found it to be interesting. This is the second time we’ve scheduled
the program, and we appreciate everyone that took part. The Marine
Corps League put a strong ending to the program, and it was very
moving seeing the Iwo-Jima reenactment. Thanks to those of you that
stayed in the heat and to all that participated.
