Summer is drawing to a close, but weekly markets will continue! Throughout September and October, Old Beach vendors will be on hand from 9 to noon each Saturday. Third Saturday markets will resume in November and continue through May.

Thanks to your patronage, our farmers have been able to plant more varieties and extend the season. Meats, eggs, cheese, flowers, plants, and prepared foods have been selling well. Our vendors enthusiastically want to continue.

What you buy at a farmers market extends economic benefits throughout our community.  And now, with the demand you’ve created, the market will stay weekly for two more months. Thanks, y’all.

Part-time favorites return this week:  The Orchid Station, Beach Biscotti, and Sandi’s Sandies. Connie Weis, the genius behind Brownies, Cookies & S’more, will be on hand with a sweet surprise:  the launch of her new cookbook! Extreme Brownies: 50 Recipes for the Most Over-the-Top Treats Ever promises to be “the last brownie recipes you will ever need.” Can she really be revealing her secrets? Come by for a signed copy.

A bursting market for a holiday weekend. How can we make your Labor Day less laborious?
