More news: because of the new and exciting things happening at the HFM, I've been told there are openings for several new volunteers to help out. Volunteers due a variety of things; my personal fav is spending a couple hours each Saturday at the market, schmoozing with the vendors, helping customers find what they are shopping for and helping wherever I'm needed. I love the positive vibes at the HFM, and I go home with delicious, fresh food and feeling high on life.
Did I mention fresh flowers as well? Divine Creations, tucked in the back of the bigger building, sells fresh flowers including my personal favorite, hydrangeas. But lots more as well, including wedding flowers and accessories, center pieces...the list goes on and on. Plus, this is the stand where you can pick up FREE coffee.
This week at the market the vendors will be selling Michigan apples, beets, bell peppers, sweet peppers, hot peppers, blueberries, greens, cucumbers as well as small ones for pickling, kale,sweet onions, peaches (probably Red Havens! so juicy and delicious!), potatoes, raspberries rhubarb, some strawberries...yes, the "season" is over, but not for these ever-bearing ones! summer squash, zucchini, winter squash, sweet corn and tomatoes galore! Plus a full line of fresh herbs. So plan your menus and buy fresh. Remember to ask the vendor if the item is locally grown, Michigan grown or from out of state.
REMEMBER: IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN THE HOLT FARMERS' MARKET!
