The Forest Hills UMC Farmers Market returns for its 4rd season; welcoming past and new favorites The market is open from June 1st through September 2013, 8:00 am to Noon. Kicking off the season the first weekend in June is local favorite- Duology. Joseph Brunelle and Barry Coggins-self proclaimed darlings of NPR will bring their original acoustic guitar sound to the market.
The Market is a great place to gather with friends and neighbors for a fresh cup of coffee, breakfast, and to pick up seasonal produce and local products. Each week will feature local artists to entertain while you shop or just relax at the picnic tables under our 200-year-old Burr Oak tree.
Fifteen vendors will participate in the weekly community event providing a diverse selection of fruits, vegetables, herbs and meast. Artisan breads, freshly baked muffins, delicious desserts, hearty summer soups, herbal lemonades and freshly brewed coffee will also be available.
Currently, the local farms who are participating are Delvin Farms, Real Food Farms, Howell Farms, Blue Berry Ridge, Pinewood Farms, Nunnelly: Nature's Promise Farm, The Fly Farm and Womack Beef. Other vendors include: Fresh seafood adn locally grown meats by Wild & Local, Freshly baked goods prepared by Anne's Carks, Papa C's Pies & Bittasweet Cookies, Purebread Baking Company, Herbal Lemonades, Summer Soups and locally roasted coffees served by Primm Springs. New to the market will be " Grab & Good" meals by Nutrisha using only the best organic and seasonal produce, along with artisan products from the market.
The market will be at its usual spot under the 200 plus year-old Burr Oak tree in the church’s yard. Jim Hughes, Minister, Forest Hills UMC, explains, “As with previous seasons, it is important that The Forest Hills UMC Farmers Market continues to be unique in that everyone who is involved again this year is giving back to the community. For example, our church supports all things local, so we do not charge our vendors to participate. Instead, growers are asked to donate portions of their fresh produce to Feed America First, a local hunger relief organization.”
Make the Market one of your weekly stops during the summer- See you at the Market.
