We’re back!

The market will open this Thursday, May 23rd, at the Gardendale Civic
Center, from 9 AM to 1 PM. There’ll be local vegetables and fruits,
honey, fried pies, muscadine juice, tomato plants, and home made
soaps, lotions, and deodorants. We have new vendors, April McClung,
Emily’s Heirloom Pound Cakes, selling cake slices and taking orders
for full cakes; Tracey Kerbler, Glenn Brook Acres, selling Highland
cattle hamburg and other beef cuts; and J.D. Junkins, Screaming Beans
Coffee, selling coffee beans and grinds from around the world. This
year, the Gardendale Kiwanis Club members will be doing children’s
story reading at 9:30 AM, starting this week. We’ll have a canopy set
up for the children to sit under. We’re continuing the veteran’s
canopy occupied by members of the Viet Nam Veterans of America and
Vets to Vets; occasionally, a member of the Veterans Administration
will be present. Please let our sponsors, America’s First Federal
Credit Union; John Deere dealer, TriGreen Equipment; and Scott
Cantrell, State Farm Insurance, know you’re aware they’re our
sponsors. Please come to the market and support our growers and
vendors. See you Thursday.
