The South East Area Farmers’ Market is open for the 2011 season!

The South East Area Farmers’ Market is open for the 2011 season!
On Wednesday, the South East Area Farmers’ Market began at the Gerald R Ford Middle School from 5pm to 7pm.  Vendors sold herbs, greens, homemade crafts, and vegetable plants!  Community folks danced line dances and it was a festive atmosphere!

Come join us this Wednesday, May 25th, for more transplants for your garden, more spring greens to eat, and more dancing with your neighbors!

Saturday opened the market at Garfield Park from 9am to 1pm.  It was a beautiful day to stroll the park and shop with neighborhood vendors.  There were mustard greens, kale, herbs, lettuce, spinach, and homemade salves, and soaps for sale!  Many plants were donated to neighborhood families!  Join us on June 4th for the second Garfield Park market!
