MOVING INDOORS NOV 1

And just in time.

The weather is looking like it may turn chilly, but not to worry, you can find your local grown veggies and locally made crafts indoors at the Community Table – just across the bridge and through the park  – from 10 – 1 each Saturday.

We had a great last outdoor Farmers Market this past Saturday complete with dancing and a parade. Kim Shuler sang some great tunes and Jackson County Arts Council sponsored program Family Art at the Market (FAM) made hats with kids for our annual Hat Parade. The parade marks the end of our outdoor season and the beginning of our indoor market season. You can find us at the Community Table from 10:00 – 1:00 each Saturday through the winter. FAM will be creating wonders with kids most Saturdays.
