The Getting Is SO Good

COBBLESTONE FARMERS MARKET NEWSLETTER
October 20, 2018


Rain or Shine – we will be going STRONG!!
Looking like a little sprinkle tomorrow morning so put on your rain gear and come on out with lots of bags – the getting is good!

Scroll down to our VENDOR list to make your very own for swift purchasing AFTER you nail your choice of a warm beverage of coffee, tea or HOT CHOCOLATE (see NEW vendor section!)! You might consider bringing your own mug to hang on to that Saturday slumber feeling!

We are happy to see some of our vendors back this week who have been hit by the hurricanes. There are many true stories of helping hands during these natural disasters, often random acts of kindness that are almost magically impactful. One such story is the rescue of PTB’s meat freezers when they lost power due to Hurricane Michael and the outlooks was for many days. Luckily a chef friend, Harrison Littell, and others came to the rescue and got those freezers

Please let us know if you would like to shoot the market and we will gladly describe our guidelines for photography and share some of our image needs! Any photos we use would be acknowledged on our website. Due to the pixel needs in most websites, we do need pics that are taken with a camera just a little different from our trusty phones!
