This Week at the MarketHere's what's happening this week at NSFM
Saturday, June 25, 2016: Highlights
It may get a little bit wet, but this is going to be an outstanding market! BERT and his handmade willow baskets and picture frames will be there (it might be his only appearance for the season).
We have 2 new growers starting on Saturday, bringing some beautiful fruits and vegetables (and yes, our vendors will have sweet, juicy cherries, strawberries, raspberries AND blueberries – another first for the market to have all of them ripe and ready at the same time!), and we’ll have lots of MOONSTRUCK ORGANIC CHEESES to tempt you (including a truly amazing Blackberry Blue), the very first of the season’s zucchinis and cherry tomatoes, as well as a huge variety of greens, lettuces, salad greens, lamb sausages & cuts, local preserves, and, oh, that baking!
We have another new band to entertain us: LUCILLE DRIVE (headed by Tim Storm, who played at our May 14th market with Pocket Full of Dust), and LIAM SINGH will be back as our featured artist. Whatever the weather, our growers will be working hard to get their produce to the market, so we’re looking forward to seeing you there!

About the Community Table
A unique feature of our market is the Community Table, where local growers can drop off produce for the market volunteers to sell on their behalf for a 15% commission. Anyone with an excess of eggs or figs or flowers, or a bumper crop of something interesting from their gardens can drop it off before 9:00, and come back at 12:30 to pick up their proceeds and any unsold items. Contact us for details and a Growers Sales Sheet.
