Feature Event: No rain or crazy temperatures. Walk, ride or drive on over.

Growers: Groff’s Content Farm – Pastured meats & eggs, Cat’s Paw Organic Farm, ECO City Farm(spinach, kale, and collards!).

Tasty Treats: Geppetto Catering BBQ, El Taco Loco, The Verandah Indian food, Stone Hearth Bakery.

Entertainers: For your music act, we have Chris Ousley of the Bumper Jacksons. Coming to you @ 5 PM tonight.

Kid fun: Good old sidewalk chalk!

Sorry, the Rooster is done until we decide what to do next.
Important Notices:
Food safety notice: Due to a preponderance of evidence and our county’s health department regulations, dogs are no longer welcome at the farmers market. We regret the loss but hope that our dog owning customers will forgive us for this change.
Important note about parking: only parallel parking is allowed on Maryland Ave (the road that passes under East-West Highway) — please do not park in any other manner.
