Hi Tuesday Market Friends-
This week marks our 10th Tuesday Market of 2016. It certainly feels like we’re in full swing! Check out this great video shot two weeks ago by East Longmeadow Community Access TV, it’s a great taste of what you’ll find at market tomorrow:
We will have a new addition tomorrow. Julie from Crooked Stick Pops will be peddling her “Pop-Cycle” over from Easthampton with fresh fruit popsicles!
Adam Zucker will be on stage performing for us between 3:30 and 5:30. He plays originals and covers in genres like reggae, pop, rock, r&b, and blues.
The sun has sure been spoiling us lately (for better or worse for our farmers!). Above is a pretty shot of elecampane growing strong at Sawmill Herb Farm in Florence. They harvest the root in the fall, it has medicinal properties that are helpful for respiratory issues. I had the pleasure of visiting Sawmill and getting a tour of their fields last week. It was a treat to see where they grow all of their medicinal and culinary plants.
A tower of carrots at Old Friend Farm!
Help us to spread the word about the SNAP and Save Program which is allowing us to match $10 in SNAP money each week. That means that SNAP customers get $20 for a $10 withdrawal of SNAP benefits each week at the market (Thank you CISA and Healthy Hampshire!). SNAP tokens can be used for anything SNAP eligible, including meat, fruits, vegetables, honey, maple, cheese, bread, granola and plant starts. Stop by the purple market tent to learn more.
