Nat'l Farmers Market Fest was Full of Fun!

The atmosphere was that sense of a community gathering. Eating food together will do that! The corn roast was a hit and Jason did an awesome job cooking the corn. "It was the best corn I have ever had," raved market manager Donna. A big thanks to Jean Rudolf for donating the corn.
The exhibitors were great as well. Educational exhibits provided by the St. Joseph County Farm Bureau, St. Joseph County Health Department, and the Unity Gardens; and free Blood pressure and glucose testing by Bendix Family Physicians. Lots of people visited them.
In addition, music by Jack Daly guitar and song) and Kathy Jerrell (dulcimer)was enjoyed by all.
What a great day! A big thanks to all the volunteers who helped serve, run errands, and who provided the big tent.
See you next Saturday at the market!
