     The birds are singing and the flowers are blooming. It's time to go to the River City Farmers Market and get all those new bedding and vegetable garden plants. There are potted tomato plants as well and hanging basket tomatoes. Ready to start that new herb garden? They have plenty of potted herbs to choose from. Beautiful flower baskets for hanging to attract those delightful butterflies and hummingbirds, the glory of summer, don't you think.
     The strawberries are coming on early this year, and we have fresh rhubarb to go with. Asparagus, onions, lettuce, dried mushrooms, radishes, as well as sprouts for your salads. Something new each week this time of year. Fresh eggs, meats and cheeses, jams, jellies and condiments, even pickles and salsas.  there is Honey, sorghum and syrups for your pancakes. Pies, cakes,  cookies and fresh baked breads. What could be better?
      Inside the building you'll find various fine handcrafted arts and crafts, all lovingly made by our members. There is no better way to spend a Saturday morning than out visiting with your friends and neighbors, enjoying the fresh spring air and getting some exercise. We are always happy to see you so come by for a visit and enjoy the down home hospitality of the River City Farmers Market.
     We are open every Saturday all year long till 1:00pm. Hope to see you there!
     We will be adding a Wednesday afternoon market as a summer event. That will begin the first Wednesday in May from 3:00 to 6:00pm and end the last Wednesday in August. This will enable you to have even fresher produce throughout the week.

Dessert and Cake Auction a Great Success

Thursday, April 12, 2012

     Well, I want you all to know our first ever Dessert and Cake Auction for Easter was a great success. Will probably repeat this one for next year. Many cakes were purchased and then given to someone else as a gift. Very nice time was had by all.
     The big doors have been unsealed and are ready to be opened this weekend. Vegetable Plants, herbs and flowers are in abundance. Most plant and produce members will be set up outside in the lot now, and for the rest of the growing season. Be sure to come by and secure your plants for the season. Some really nice large tomato plants in big pots are available, Tumbling Tom tomato baskets and 5 gallon pots, most with bloom and some with tiny tomatoes already. These will go quick. I don't know about you, but I for one cannot wait for that first ripe homegrown tomato from the garden. There is no better eating as far as I am concerned.
       Fresh produce this week will be rhubarb, onions, radishes, lettuce, greens, garlic, broccoli and sprouts to my knowledge.
       Also just wanted everyone to know the new sign has been installed on the end of the building facing the ball diamonds and aquatic center. It can be seen and read from Muskinghum Drive about a block away.
       Our ball caps are in and available for purchase. Cost is $10.00 each. Wearing these caps is like being a walking billboard for the market. Be sure to purchase yours soon and wear it where ever you go. The bags are on the way.
      Remember we are on summer hours now 8:00am to 1:00pm every Saturday.
      The Wednesday Market starts  May 2nd at 3:00pm till 6:00pm and will run through the month of August.
     See you on Saturday.

Everyone have a Blessed Day
