Folks, you may be mourning the all-too-quick passing of the local strawberry season, but have no fear: this weekend marks the beginning of peach season at the market. Keep an eye out, and maybe stop by early just in case you’re worried about missing out on this first-market limited stock.
Separately, we’d love to hear from you about your experience with the Westover Farmers Market. We’re always eager for suggestions and ideas, so we’ve set up an online survey and welcome your participation. You can find it here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/68PPLLX Thanks in advance for helping us make the market experience better.
Big day coming up this Sunday, June 22—the WFM Raffle is Back! We’ll be up on the plaza during the entire market, raffling off bags and baskets of donated produce, goods and other treats. Every customer gets a raffle ticket from every vendor that they buy from. Just write in your name and cell phone on each ticket and we will call you if you win. Or hang out and enjoy the drama to see which lucky customer goes home with the goods. We will also be raffling off 4 gift cards to Lebanese Taverna. (Here’s a tip: Print out small labels with your name and number so you don’t have to write them on all the tickets.)
Got your Father’s Day shopping done? Well, if not, come on down to Westover Farmers Market tomorrow morning. Some suggestions any dad might dig: Peruvian-style chicken from Rub ‘n Roost. Or a nice piece of meat to grill from Smith Family Farm. Or some great breakfast sausage from Smith Family Farm or Ole Pioneer’s Kitchen. There are some great cheeses available up on the plaza area and some ready-to-eat foods. And if you are planning a big dinner to celebrate Father’s Day, there is a wide assortment of seasonal fruits and vegetables available from our farm vendors down on the street.
