Farmers’ Market ORDER AND PICKUP! You can now call an order in for the products at the Farmers’ Market! Read the e-mail that comes out on
Wednesday each week of the vendors and the products they are bringing. An order will not be guaranteed, but our volunteer shoppers will do their best to purchase the best products you order as they are available. Then, you can drive in during the market to pick them up (and pay then) or we will hold your products till Sunday for you to pick up at church. This is an experimental program that we hope will allow you to use fresh vegetables, fruit, and prepared items from our local vendors.
