It's a gorgeous sunny day outside, and this afternoon I took a walk over by the Market site to enjoy a little fresh air. It's doesn't quite look like Market season yet (we need a little more green on the trees for that), but it felt warmer on February 26 than at some of those late-season markets last October!
Right now it's hardcore planning season: fundraising so that we can continue to offer SNAP incentives and afford equipment and Market staff, planning fun promotional events to help get the community excited for Market season, and mapping out logistics, programming, and advertising. Applications have been rolling in from returning favorite vendors and a couple of new farms already. And the most important part of Market planning season is coming up with ways to get more people to buy our fresh offerings. That's why we're all here, right?
