In Case You Missed It

We hope you've enjoyed the features this summer on eight of the farmers at our Market. It is our hope that we have helped you come to see each of the farmers as individuals with a story to tell. We think they're all interesting and unique, and it has been our pleasure getting to know them a little better ourselves as we prepared to share more details with you all. 

With several more markets still ahead, please take advantage of this opportunity to refresh your memory, or, if you missed one or two of the farmer features to read them now. 

We're bringing back a photo of each of the farmers, along with one of our favorite photos of their beautiful products, and a link to the article so you can be sure you "Know Your Farmer".
