Circle the date on the calendar: Saturday, August 13th, is our annual customer appreciation morning at the Farmers Market. It gets better. It’s also our monthly Market Feast Fundraiser featuring produce from the farm of The Dawson Green. Neil Dawson will be cooking up some amazing foods from everybody’s favorite summer gem: tomatoes. Green tomatoes. Yep. You may be surprised what culinary delights you can create before those Cherokee Purples or Better Girls start turning red.
USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack has officially declared August 7 through August 13, 2016 as the 17th annual National Farmers Market Week, to celebrate the farmers, ranchers and local food businesses as well as the communities that support them. Jackson County Farmers Market is one of more than 8,500 farmers markets around the country, which gives us a lot to celebrate.
We’re gearing up for a great day at the Market so stayed tuned for more info and plan to join us on the 13th!
