First Friday Farmer's Market
The first Friday Farmer's Market was a complete success!!!
We had 20 vendors who were all wonderful and had amazing goods to offer. Slow Food held a heirloom tomato sale and they had some beautiful plants, including Thai Pink Egg Tomatoes, who knew there was such a thing. We had beautiful jewelry from Nomadic Ant, great bags from Malia Designs, clothing from Kiitchipan, and gorgeous food from Delightful Pastries, Harvest Moon Farm, Mint Creek Farm, and Seedling Farm. Goose Island and Koval Distillery were there to give out tasty samples of Matilda beer and Rosehip Liqueur (my favorite). Green Box was there to sell their fantastic planter boxes with City Farm compost included, a really great way to garden in alternative spaces (rooftop/fire escape/patio). We had several other community vendors there to get the word out about all the fantastic work they are doing too. Overall the day was beautiful and it was a pleasure to see everyone shopping from these local businesses and enjoying the honky tonk music to the fullest.
Come every Friday for fun and good local food and music, 4-8pm!
We also give rooftop tours throughout the evening, so it's always a great time to see what we are working on up there.
Thank you so much to our vendors and our shoppers!
