Around we go again, back to the start. The Marquette Farmers Market is where I started down this path 4 years ago with 60 loaves of bread. This Saturday is the first market of the 2010 season. The hours are 9am-2pm and I’ll be in my usual place on the Marquette Commons. I’m dusting off the saw horses and old doors I use as tables. Found and washed the table cloths. Baskets — Check. Lunch box for a change drawer. The one item that’s still up in the air is my awning. A gust of wind near the end of last season damaged it, and I didn’t order repair parts until last week. If I don’t get them in time, I’ll have to be out in the sun for the first week, and from what the forecast says, it should be sunny and warm, just like the rest of this beautiful week. Please come out to the Farmers market. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday morning!
In addition to the Marquette market, our breads and cookies will be available at the Munising Farmers Market on Tuesdays from 4-7pm starting next week. Rowan Bunce of Rock River Farms will be selling them at his stand there.
On Wednesdays starting next week, we will have a stand at the Jackson Mine (Negaunee) Market from 4:30-6:30pm. If you are out on the West End, please stop in and say hello.
