Hey there Everyone!
With yesterday’s announcement from the governor about limiting group gatherings to ten or less people, we are going to have to cancel the remaining two weeks of Saturday morning farmers’s markets. We are going to set our sights on looking forward to the outdoor markets that will start on Thursdays in May, but until then, we will have to say, “See ya in a bit!”
THERE’S ANOTHER THING!!!!
There is still good news for today, here and now!
Our vendors are still offering their products for private sales and here is a list of contact information for some of the vendors:
One thing to notate about dealing directly with the owner of a small business is the fact that they are more than happy to work with you on how and when to get their quality products into your hands. For instance, Jaime from Twisted Oaks Meats mentioned that if you go to their website and click on the Mt. Vernon Farmers’ Market as the delivery point for your order, she’ll meet you there! Pretty cool, huh?!?!?!
