Mark your calendars and save the date for a special Holiday Farmers’ Market and Tree-Lighting Ceremony set for Saturday, November 23 from 4-7 p.m.! We’re partnering with the Texas Township DDA to decorate the Corners with holiday cheer and do a special tree-lighting event and farmers’ market for the community to enjoy as we get ready for the holidays.
It will be a great opportunity to grab local goodies – including seasonal fruit and vegetables (like apples, cranberries, squash, greens, root vegetables, potatoes, pumpkins and gourds), baked goods, cheese and meat (including turkeys!) – for your Thanksgiving feast, or to create a special Farmers’ Market gift bag full of Fresh on Q! goodies. Other products include apple cider, jams and jellies, pasta, soup mixes, herbal soaps, honey, maple syrup, pet treats, evergreen wreaths and roping and more! Follow us on Facebook to get gift and recipe ideas, or sign up for the e-newsletter to get a list of vendors and products.
This year’s market was open for the regular 2013 season on Saturdays from May 11 to October 12, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Tuesdays from June 18 to August 27, 4 to 7 p.m. to support local farmers and food businesses while getting the freshest, tastiest foods around – all grown and prepared locally!
