June is Bustin’ Out All Over …..

It’s June .. let us all bust out in song:

“All =
Look around! Look around! Look ‘around!

Nettie =
June is bustin’ out all over
All over the meadow and the hill!
Buds’re bustin’ outa bushes
And the rompin’ river pushes
Ev’ry little wheel that wheels beside the mill!

June is bustin’ out all over
The feelin’ is gettin’ so intense,
That the young Virginia creepers
Hev been huggin’ the bejeepers
Outa all the mornin’ glories on the fence!
Because it’s June…

All =
June, June, June
Just because it’s June, June, June!”

A beautiful song, lyrics and musical, “Carousel”, Rodgers and Hammerstein …..

Yes, it’s June and week 5 of the market.  The first 2 weeks brought out familiar and new faces to our market and the pace aroused the hope of a terrific season.  We took a chance one week before opening day and reestablished ourselves under the canopy of trees in the Buck Mtn Parish Hall parking lot.  As it turns out, as fate will have it, it remains a better fit for our ever fluid market.

I think we shall now consider it home.  And ….

June, June, June is bustin’ out all over.   We happily welcome back Harold, John, Chris and Annie of Sylvanaqua Farms, Rose of Buck Mtn Farm, Samara of Lettuce Grow Farm, Karen with Rocky Road Produce, Ben’s Baked Goods, Little Neva’s Bakery and The Roper Family.  New thus far this season are Priya and Savi.    We are merry!      AND …

One of our new Vendors is John Watts  ( Saddle Hollow Plants 434 823-5809 ) from Crozet, VA, offering a very colorful selection of unusual varieties of Day Lilies as well as house plants.  The Purple Passion Plant is very popular.  Stop by John’s tent to hear an extremely vivid history of his lilies and then take some home with you!

We are pleased to have Marleen Townsend and her daughter, Samara, from Lettuce Grow Farm in Barboursville, VA join us.   They set up a lovely, rich arrangement of their luscious home grown produce, including a rarity, chocolate mint, early in the season !  Please stop by their tent, which is usually down towards the end of the vendor grouping. Next we proudly present our CSA, Rocky Mtn Produce managed by Jason Stager.   You’ll probably see Karen and their daughter Samantha, manning the the tent while Jason tends the garden in Stanardsville, VA.   Karen lovingly make jams & jellies with their berries as well as some baked goods, including Snickerdoodle Cookies on a stick!   Their produce is a very welcome addition to our market, bringing our produce vendors up to a very merry 3
