Market Manager Report

Joe Donnelly and his wife came before we opened, but vendors sold to him anyway. The customer number was higher than I thought (139). It seemed like a really low turnout after our opening day. I'm sure the storm the night before (and the downed trees and power outages that followed) had a lot to do with it.

Speaking of storms... we'll have to wait and see if produce was harmed with this last round of storms. It looks like there will be time for the fields to dry out a little bit so they can get in to pick.

In case you haven't heard, we received sad news Thursday June 17. Betty Hopson-Taylor who makes the sweet-potato pies from the Holiness Church of God passed away very suddenly. We will miss her! Her granddaughter, who was with her at market on the 12th, said they would like to come back to the market in a couple weeks. That day at market was very special for her because it was just her, her son and her grandmother--a treasured memory.
