For our second Saturday of our Main Market Season, we have a full market of vendors for your shopping pleasure!

We also have Corey + Steve from Good Sweet Earth here to teach kids (and adults!) how healthy soil works to give you healthy plants. You can mix your own compost + soil, plant a seed in a dixie cup, and then take it home and watch it grow! They are also available for any questions regarding going organic in their own lawns + gardens!
