We’ll be on the parking lot.

Tomorrow, we’ll be set up on the parking lot near Main Street; the
weather forecast is predicting a 50% chance of rain. As of this
writing, all the growers and vendors will be attending. We’ll have
the normal produce, vegetables and fruit, honey, fried pies, baked
goods, muscadine grape juice, and homemade body products (soap,
lotion, Chap Stick, and more). We have a booth that’s managed by
fellow Viet Nam veterans and a recent former deployed Marine who has
information relating to the VA and other veteran matters.
It is with a sad heart that our fellow Air Force veteran, knife
sharpener, Bill Woodard passed away this afternoon from a long battle
with colon cancer. Bill did the knife sharpening as a Christian
Outreach for his church’s youth group for many years. Bill will be
missed, and please pray for Bill’s family and friends

A beautiful day is predicted for tomorrow.

Beautiful weather is predicted for tomorrow. There’ll be the
vegetables and fruits, honey, fried pies, and other baked goods. Last
week, we had a new vendor Donney Harwell, Jenny Harwell Art, selling
delicious home made muscadine juice. Thom and Lou Ann Duran, Two Fat
men Catering, will be selling their delicious Italian dishes and steak
sandwiches. America’s First Federal Credit Union will have their
mobile ATM unit available. Please come out and support our growers and
vendors.
By the way, Tractor Supply, located on Hwy 31 in Gardendale, is
planning on having a farmers market on September 22nd, and they’re
looking for vendors to sell produce or crafts. If you’re interested,
please call them at 205-631-0766 for details.

The weather is promising to look good

This will be our twelfth week of operation with seven more to go. We
had a great response last week until the storm hit, around noontime,
and it was nice seeing so many customers. We had a new vendor Susan
Swindal, Mama Suz Fried Pies, selling her home made fried pies; it was
obvious they’re good because she sold a lot of them. We welcomed
back Marisa Sandlin, Marisa’s Maile, selling homemade jewelry;
earrings, bracelets, anklets, necklaces, and key rings. We’ll be
welcoming Jennifer Harwell, Jennifer Harwell Art, selling alcohol free
pomegranate wine; free samples will be offered. Thom and Lou Ann
Duran, Two Fat Men Catering, will be selling their delicious Italian
meals and steak sandwiches. Cheyenne Batson, Chey’s Crunchy Crafts,
will be selling homemade soaps, lotions, bath bombs and candles. Due
to a technical problem, the America’s First Federal Credit Union
mobile ATM unit will not be available. There’ll be the normal
produce, fruits and vegetables, honey, and baked goods for sale. We
now have a special booth for veterans; members of the Viet Nam
Veterans (VVA) and United Veterans Service (UVS) will be manning the
booth along with other veterans who served honorably. At the present
time, Navy Senior Chief Petty Officer (Ret), Benny Reeves, Marine
combat veteran Jeremy Smith, Viet Nam combat veteran Joe Stahlkupp,
and new comer Bill Carter will be giving out vet-related and the
Veterans Administration (VA) information; Jeremy will be selling hand
carved wood items. Some customers have asked about the knife
sharpener, Bill Woodard, who is in his final stages of colon cancer;
at this time, please put Bill and his family in your prayers. Please
keep coming and support our growers and vendors.

We’ll be on the lawn

Tomorrow is the first day of school, and we’d like to see as many
of you as possible. Even though the forecast is for a 60% chance of
storms, we’ll be set up on the lawn. We have a new fried pie vendor,
Susan Swindle, Mama Suz Fried Pies, starting tomorrow. There’ll be
the usual produce, vegetables and fruit, honey, fried pies, homemade
jewelry, and homemade balms, lotions, candles and other products. Two
Fat Men Caterers will be selling their delicious steak sandwiches and
Italian dishes, and America’s First Federal Credit Union will have
their mobile ATM unit available. We’ve recognized our veterans with a
booth manned by different organizations; lately, we’ve had members of
the Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA). Please come out and support our
growers and vendors.

We’ll be open tomorrow, 8-2-18

The market will be open tomorrow on the blacktop near Main St. At the
present time, I’m not sure if we’ll have anyone selling baked
goods or if our caterer, Two Fat Men Catering, will be with us;
we’ll have to see what happens with the weather. I’ll try to make
an entry in the morning prior to us setting up. There will be produce,
honey, and lip balms and other personal products sold. America’s
First Federal Credit Union will have their mobile ATM unit present.
Please come out and support our growers and vendors. Also, please let
our sponsors, TriGreen Equipment; America’s First Federal Credit
Union; and Scott Cantrell, State Farm Insurance know you saw this
information. We hope to see you tomorrow.
