Oh happy day! It's the first day of March + that means the Spring Equinox is less than a month away! Soon enough we we'll be seeing the emergence of daffodils, hearing the beautiful chirps of birds, and hopefully feeling the sun's warmth on our faces!

Although Winter is still here, we are happy that our Winter Market has been a popular shopping spot through these cold months. Tomorrow is our first Winter Market of March, and we'll have a great variety of vendors for you.

For a more complete list of foods you can find tomorrow, see the list below!

Also, our fun + festive Winter fundraiser, Soup @ FSFM, is only one week away!!
