1,000 Facebook Likes and Pie Life Returns to the Market in May

We’ve reached 1,000 likes on the Westover Farmers Market Facebook page! Please like our page if you haven’t done so already: https://www.facebook.com/westoverfarmersmarket.

Speaking of “likes,” do you like pie? Livin’ the Pie Life will be returning to the market this summer! Because of their growing popularity, they won’t be able to make every market Sunday, so you should check for the “Eat More Pie” banner in the plaza. While you wait for the summer market to begin, you can read about Livin’ the Pie Life in a recent Washington Post article.
