Our friends at the local businesses Stream 'n' Wood and Lady of the Lake have been interested in a farmers market for a while, so it seemed like a natural to try it out at these side-by-side businesses with a great, visible location! Today was our second Saturday, and even though it was blustery and chilly, we had a great day! Both businesses jumped on board with nice bonuses for people who brought something for the Food Bank and we offered a discount of 10% at our table. It was a good vibe - drop something off for the Food Bank, get your coupons, shop at the Market, shop at the Stream, lunch at the Cafe! Word's getting out and we had a better turn-out today, with more donations for the Food Bank! Marla is keeping track of donations, and we'll give you a total at the end of the month! Meantime, if you're in Brandon on a Saturday in the next three weeks, come on out! Bring an item (or items!) for the Food Bank, get a deal on great local produce, get a deal at Stream 'n' Wood and make time to take advantage of a deal that day on lunch at the Cafe at Lady of the Lake! And don't forget: if you've had a great year in your veggie garden, Samaritan House will happily take any excess for their families! Hope to see you there; stop by and say hi Saturdays in October from 10:00 AM until Noon!
