Market Report from August 14

Kathy Jerrel came and played her dulcimer for most of the time. Very nice. Artist Kathleen Petitjean had her pen and ink drawings on display and had greeting cards for sale. Her art can also be seen at http://quillpenstudio.com.
Pa's Garden Patch was there with tomatoes, beans and squash.
We continue to promote support for our neighbors, the LaSalle Branch Library. It is open Saturday afternoons, and makes a great stop after picking up some produce.
Sadly, the heat was affecting several vendors in terms of produce and personal health, but the market weather was pleasant, with humidity only rising after the market closed.
