Spring has Sprung

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Spring has sprung and it's starting to look pretty green, the birds are chirping and we are looking forward to gardening.  The farmers are already comparing the height of their plants and we are ready for some fresh veggies from the garden.  Some new plantings are already here, ready for you to plant. Nothing like getting a little dirt under the nails. The rewards are great.

The River City Farmer's Market's main goal is to promote a healthier way of living through better eating.

  The produce available here is all home grown locally.  We pride ourselves on the quality of produce available.  Our members make available a wide variety of vegetables, herbs, plants, fruits and so much more.  We do not always know what is in the food that we buy pre-packaged, but if you buy a tomato at the market, it is a tomato with no artificial enhancers. We will have fresh herbs to naturally flavor foods that we prepare.  How about some fresh sprouts for your salad or sandwich?

A lot of information is available these days about eating fresh fruits, vegetables, and breads made from whole grains.  Well, we have them all.

We have hormone free, organic meats and cheeses.  Some varieties of meat are chicken, beef, pork, rabbit and goat. Varieties of cheeses are too numerous to mention them all, but we have gouda, swiss, cheddar, garlic, pumpkin (yes, I said pumpkin) and many, many more.

Saturday, March 30th, we are having our 2nd annual Dessert Auction.   The auction begins at 10:00 am and ends when the last dessert is gone.The members, and some customers, are preparing their favorite Easter dessert for auction.  This was such a huge success last year that we just had to do it again.  Bid on a dessert, be it a German Chocolate or Lemon, Lemon or Coconut cake or even cookies for your Easter dinner.  All who attended last year had a blast and many had a one-of-a-kind dessert to call their own.

Also, we are still accepting donations for area food banks so desperately  in  need.
Be sure to get your free raffle ticket each time you donate.  We will hold a drawing on the 30th of March for  $25.00 market cash to spend with any member of your choice. You pick  your gift. You need not be present to win.

Speaking of gifts we have many Easter basket fillers.  How about kiddie soaps, crocheted animals, doggie bandanas, jewelry and more. Easter decor is still available for your home. And, of course, don't  forget your eggs for coloring.

We hope to see you every Saturday until 1:00 pm at the 922 Front Street, Marietta (Washington County Fairgrounds) year round.
