Cold Drinks for Hot Weather

Tomorrow is market day, and it looks like its going to be a hot one! Luckily our vendors are stepping up to the plate and making some organic drinks to keep you cool while you shop! Sakshi Gantenbein (you probably know him from his amazing dog collars or the smell of cinnamon wafting from his cart as he glazes walnuts and almonds) will be offering fresh squeezed organic lemonade, and Gladheart Farm will be making mint tea with mint grown just up the road at their farm! If you need more relief from the heat, the Chocolate Lab will be bringing ice cream!

Good news for the kids! Oakley Farmers Market has purchased a tent that will be set up every week just for kids activities! Each week will have kid activities to keep the little ones entertained while you fill your market baskets. It’s a great way to meet your neighbors or see old friends from around the corner!

Have you signed up for our newsletter? Every week we will preview what will be at the market as well as what entertainment and activities are going on. New this week is a recipe section featuring ingredients you can find at the market! Chris Smith will be playing music down at the end of the market between Gladheart Farm and Tupelo Honey. Also, Gina, one of the OFM steering comittee members, will be doing a sauerkraut demonstration at 4pm in the information tent. If you missed it a few weeks ago, plan on being there tomorrow!

The market is currently seeking outdoor furniture donations and a few good volunteers to help running the information tent, and anything else you could do to help. Thanks for making our market the best it can be! See you tomorrow!
