Farmers Market Manager Update

As we come closer to the end of the 2012 season I want to thank all of our supportive customers and our loyal, fabulous vendors.   Our last day for this season will be October 18th.   We have been very fortunate this year experiencing more agreeable weather, more customers and a marvelous variety of produce, plants, pulled pork, baked goods, artisan wares and other handmade / grown items.   We do miss the Ren Man, Tom Curtis, whose fragrant soaps and lotions wafted throughout our market area.  He  has rejoined the workforce!!    We wish him well.   The return to our old location has brought us luck and provides us with a much more comfortable,  inviting set up area.    We thank Mr Whyte for this move.  We are grateful that Tall Cotton, has been able to join us once again and it was through their suggestion, we now have a new, proud feather banner alerting everyone as they enter Earlysville, that the market is in full swing.  P & J Greenhouse has graced us with their presence & healthy lovely plants.   Congratulations to them on securing a VDACS inspection enabling them to sell Salsa & Pesto .  A WIN WIN situation for all.

As the manager of the market as well as owner/baker of Little Neva’s Bakery, I have unfortunately been unable to attend the market since May.   I am the caregiver for my elderly mother and regret that I will not be back this season.   I really do miss the camaraderie of our super vendors and the interaction with customers.  I look forward to next year!  I’d like to give a heartfelt THANK YOU to Michelle Brubeck for taking hold of the market reigns in my absence.  You are doing a super job!!

In the meantime …. we will once again offer the popular event of choosing your Favorite VendorVoting will begin on September 27th and end on October 4th, our Pumpkin Day!   We will put out the ballots at the front of our market row.   Results of the voting will be announced on October 11th, so come by and cast your vote for your favorite vendor!!

Pumpkin Day October 4th

Hopefully you have seen our wonderful banner ~  if you have any comments, questions or suggestions please feel free to contact us through this blog, email us or stop by and talk with Michelle Brubeck.   Thank you!!
