Signaling the End of Summer

We have had a truly delightful Farmer’s Market this season and we’re sad to see it ending.  We have enjoyed seeing the spirit of community between old friends, neighbors,  the farmers and loyal customers as we’ve explored and tasted the summers offerings. The cooking demonstrations as well as our arts vendors have been a real special addition to the market, loved by all and will only grow from here!  Third Thursdays have kept the streets of downtown alive with families and friends enjoying the music and the movies.  Many thanks to MSU Extension Offices Kim Tolbert, Rod Hollins,  Shane Kelley, Agape Church, Raising Cane’s, Holly Wilson, Holly Cooper, Tim Harper and Robby Scruggs and Scruggs Photography for making it all happen! Please stop by tomorrow for the final market of the season.  See ya next year!
