Champaign, OH:  Vacation!

All I ever wanted
Had to get away…
(The Go-Go’s)

Well, welcome back to all of you, after the market took it’s annual summer vacation, to give both you, and the vendors, a bit of time to relax…

And, as you are all returning to the market, I am leaving on a much needed vacation! I know, I’ve been scarce, this summer, but duty has called, just about every week, since June, with catering, and now…well, now, I am going to relax!!

I’m just coming off of my high school 40th reunion, from last week, so I thought I’d keep the 80s vibe going with this song implant, and well, it’s just such a feel good song to kick off a fresh new market week!

I am opening it up, early, today, because I will be in an airport, this evening, so take advantage, and begin that ordering!!

Pick up will be next Thursday evening! I will be running the market, as always, remotely, while Mark and my dad will be handing out your orders!!

I will see you all the following week!

Independence,VA:  Online Market is OPEN for August 17 pickup!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

This week we are celebrating National Farmer’s Market Week! Without the combined efforts of our vendors, farmers, volunteers and customers, our Farmer’s Market culture would not be possible.

So thank you all for making the Market here in Independence such a resounding success! It’s truly an essential staple of the Grayson County community.

One of the best parts about our Market is that you can shop local online, right? With everything going on this week in the county from the Agriculture Fair to the Fiddler’s Convention to the first week of school, making an order online can save you time and allow you to order things you might be able to get at the in person market. Give it a try if you haven’t yet!
