This week’s market will not open

Due to the predicted heavy rain and possible storms, the farmers
market will not open this week. Here’s hoping we have better weather
next week.

Please support our growers/vendors

Tomorrow’s weather is looking like a nice day. After tomorrow, we
only have five more weeks for the season. We have, a new vendor Robyn
Custred, Robyn’s Dough, selling fresh baked homemade breads and also
flavored butters to go with the breads. She will be bringing white,
sour dough, raisin, and possibly a few mini loaves of some sweet
breads such as banana, strawberry or blueberry. The butter flavors
are: strawberry, honey cinnamon and garlic parsley w/sun dried tomato.
She also sells baked homemade dog biscuits. The knife sharpener will
be at the market to sharpen knives, mower blades, scissors, and other
garden tools. The ladies from the N. Jefferson Quilt Guild will be
selling chances for one each of a Uv. of AL and Auburn Quilt. The
kettle corn maker will not be with us this week. Please come out and
support our growers and vendors.

Seven weeks to go

I want to thank all the customers that came out last week despite the
possibility of storms. I don’t remember seeing so many people on the
pavement. The lawn will be dry, so we will be back on the green this
week. Last week I stated that I didn’t think there would be any more
peaches; well, I was wrong. We have two growers that will be selling
them. There will be watermelons, apples, cantaloupes, eggplant,
tomatoes, and pears, too. We’ll have the normal variety of
vegetables, okra, corn, string beans, different types of squash,
peppers, and potatoes, as well as honey, baked goods, and jams and
jellies. America’s First Federal Credit Union will have their
mobile ATM unit set up for us. Our kettle corn person, Adam, won’t
be with us; however, “Hammer” the hot dog vendor will be selling
his delicious hot dogs and kettle corn. Our three entrepreneurs,
Sofia, Savanna, and Shelby are back in school and will not be with us
for the remainder of the season. The knife sharpener, Bill, will be
with us next week. The members of the N. Jefferson Quilt Guild will be
selling chances for one each of an Auburn and Uv. of AL quilt. Now
that school has started, the bouncy will no longer be set up and no
story reading. Don’t forget to patronize our three sponsors;
TriGreen Equipment, Scott Cantrell State Farm Insurance, and
America’s First Federal Credit Union. Let them know you saw their ad
on this website. Please keep coming and support our growers and

The market will open tomorrow

The market will be operating tomorrow on the parking lot of the civic
center. We intend to start no later than 9 AM, weather permitting;
closing will depend on if we have storms and heavy rain. We will not
have any baked goods or the kettle popcorn; the food vendor may
attend. There’s a strong possibility that there won’t be any more
peaches this season; due to medical problems, our one remaining peach
grower may not be able to return. I’ll keep you posted if this
changes. Because school is now open, there will no longer be
storytelling and the bouncy will be retired for the season.
Several people have asked when our knife sharpener will be returning.
Bill Woodard does sharpening as a Christian Outreach for the youth
group of his church at several different functions. Usually, he tries
to attend this market once a month. There’s a possibility that Bill
will be with us next week, August 17th; I won’t know until early
next week, and I’ll inform you when I get the word.
Please come out and support our growers and vendors.
