Next week, Friday, May 4, the SVGM moves outside~
outdoor hours: 2-6pm
The wait for the outdoor market season is almost over, and it feels like Spring is finally shining some sun and warmth down upon us. You can be sure there are still some cold nights ahead, but it looks like we're into the steady milder temperatures we've been waiting for. Thus perfectly timed, next week we move outdoors to our seasonal location between Reitz Blvd. and the parking area just outside Brook Park Pet Supply. This will be the thirteenth year for the Susquehanna Valley Growers' Market, and we're ready to make it another great one~~~
We have a couple of new vendors we will be introducing, as well as a solid contingent of returning, familiar vendors. The farmers and producers you buy from at the SVGM raise or produce everything they sell themselves; it is the qualifying difference about this market. Our vendors do not buy from anyone and resell, they don't bring others' products to sell. The pride and quality is evident in everything you'll procure with us, and if you take the time to do so, you'll also have the opportunity to forge a true relationship with the people who produce the foods you eat throughout the market season. It is a true farmers' farm market.
Next week's email will have the updated vendor list in it, and there may be a bit of fluidity as the first month of market progresses. Mark your calendars to be sure you stop by and celebrate our opening day with us~~~
Also, we will return to our business hours of 2-6pm for the outdoor market season, so you'll have an extra hour to get there after work!
A couple of vendor items this week:
Weaver's Greenhouses will be at market tomorrow with their hydroponically raised tomatoes. Their greenhouse tomatoes are excellent, and provide a delicious tomato fix until the field growns come into season later in the summer. That's a long wait for tomatoes, so take advantage of these great-tasting early ones.
Bill Callahan of Cow-a-Hen Farm, as we mentioned last week, is on an extended medical leave of absence until the beginning of June. He is doing very well, and we all wish him well, and continue to send our blessings.
As always, thank you, so very very much for all of your continuing support, and for making this indoor market season another successful one. We hope to see you tomorrow~~
