This is the seventh week

We want to thank those of you that have been our steady customers,
and we’re still looking for new ones. We’ve only had one vendor
selling jams and jellies, and she has been building commercial
accounts which has been taking more of her time; as a result, she’ll
no longer be selling her products at this market. We’re in the
process of trying to find another vendor to sell jams and jellies.
We’ll have our mobile caterers, Thom and Lou Ann Duran, Two Fat Men
Catering selling their delicious steaks and Italian plates. The
America’s First Federal Credit Union will have their mobile ATM unit
at the market. We’ll have representatives from the Gardendale Quilt
Guild selling raffle tickets for one each Auburn and UAB quilt. Our
young entrepreneur’s, Savannah and Sofia Holliman, will be selling
their 100% fruit popsicles. There’ll be corn, okra, tomatoes, peaches,
cantaloupes, watermelons, string beans, potatoes, squash, honey, chow
chow, and home made soaps, lotions, balms, etc.
In a recent conversation with City Councilman Adam Berendt, he asked
me why we don’t have the market on Saturdays. I wasn’t part of the
original group that set up the market who decided to have the event on
Thursdays. This question has been brought up at our annual meeting in
the past, and the answer is basically that all our produce growers,
and most of the vendors, have other obligations at different markets
already.
As we’ve asked in the future, please consider doing business with
our three sponsors; America’s First Federal Credit Union; Scott
Cantrell, State Farm Insurance; and TriGreen Equipment. When you do,
please inform them that you saw this, and we thank you.
Please come out tomorrow and support our growers and vendors. See you
there.
