We’ve just relaunched our bi-weekly newsletter. If you haven’t yet, you can sign up here. We’ve sent these out to our loyal shoppers before, but this year we’re adding a little more pizzazz to it. We’re showing off our exciting new color scheme, but mostly we are aiming to connect you to all the market information you could ever want.
Check out the newsletter (or website) calendar to get connected with upcoming special events and musical performances. You can check out musician’ websites before hearing them live at the market or purchase their music online afterward.
If you’ve ever wanted to help make the markets even better, check the newsletter regularly to connect with our volunteer opportunities.
You can also catch the latest “market manager” blog posts on our website to stay connected with our vendors. Sometimes there are little tidbits of information that our manager, Pat, extracts from the vendors that you won’t find anywhere else. For instance, did you know that Stinging Nettles (a common nuisance plant in the Northwest) can be eaten once boiled? They make a delicious healthful tea too.
Most importantly, the newsletter will keep you connected with what produce is coming up in the weeks to come, how the local peach crop is looking for this year and when your favorite vendor will be attending the market next. This week you can expect to see strawberries arriving. We’ve been waiting all winter for these and Pat is certain they’ll almost taste like heaven. Not only are the strawberries arriving, but there will be a good selection of other early produce coming in; Kale, Radishes, Lettuce, Spinach, Asparagus, and more.
We would love to hear back from you regarding our newsletter. If you like it, pass it along and encourage your friends and family to sign up for. If you don’t like it, tell us why. We want to improve it however possible and make it a helpful tool for you. We value your input and look forward to all your comments. In the meantime, we’ll connect with you all in person at the markets.
