Find every color in the rainbow as you walk around Tuesday Market this week! Mid-July is so colorful! Stop by the market tent to buy tokens, spin the wheel to raise money for our Food Stamps Doubling, grab a copy of Edible Pioneer Valley or just to chat recipes!
This week Grow Food Northampton’s Caroline Rosa will be offering a fun berry-themed craft project at the market tent.
Let the kids create while you shop!
Caroline will be ending her MassLIFT-AmeriCorps service term as GFN’s Youth Education Coordinator at the end of the month. We will all miss Caroline but she surely left her mark on our organization and the school children of Northampton! Read more about Caroline’s work here.
