An Abundant Harvest at a Market with a Family Feel…

Friday, Aug. 4, 2917

BLUEBERRIES! NECTARINES! CORN! BEANS! TOMATOES!  And that’s not to mention cukes and squash and radishes, herbs and flowers and so much more!!!  Each week in the summer more is added to the harvest. This week we were joined by Narrow Lane Orchard…Delicious!

 

It is both noticeable and notable that every week, our market is filled with FAMILIES! Some of them are working together as vendors….

8 R quilts etc

Others shopping together for treats and treasures,

7 R Those Sisters

Others were listening to storytelling by Loren Spears from the Tomaquag Museum

And as always, Julie at the Thundermist SNAP table, was there to help with credit/debit and SNAP benefits.

Special thanks to our new vendor Lily (and friend) who sells handmade cards and jewelry to benefit Stand Up for Animals along with painted #South County Rocks, symbols of kindness in our community and beyond.

At our next market, this Friday, August 11th you will find ecoRI, R I’s premier online environmental reporting service.

The South County Art Association will demonstrate the work they do in Kingston.  Perhaps this fall you will want to join them!

People’s Power and Light will be on hand so come by with your questions about how to be part of the Green Energy movement!  Their efforts to help develop renewable energy dovetails with efforts surrounding Charlestown’s Solarize program which is going full steam this summer.  There’s lots of enthusiasm for energy efficient living on a local level!
