Happenings at Tremont Farmers' Market
Greetings, Hungry Folks.
Oct 25: An end, but not The End.
This is our last hurrah in Lincoln Park for 2011, but next week we trundle inside The Tremont Montessori School to embark upon our newly expanded season. Details below.

A Few Shout Outs today:
*To the Murrays for letting us use their garage as storage!
***Kale Karma (AKA Kale it Forward): A big thanks to Kathy andNate Sonnhalter for help with some market data entry! My surplus of free-range, sow-itself kale paid off.... : )
Recycle/Reuse/Reduce:Please return items clean.
Bring your bags, reduce your use of plastic. Return egg cartons to J&R Farms. Return tea containers to t by Sarah. Return glass jars to Auburn Apiary, Blaze Gourmet, Godmother's Pizzas, and Abby's Kitchen.
Another way to give: St. Augustine's Church, which is across the street from the market, supports TFM in many ways. Please consider purchasing food from the market to put in our Hunger Center bucket at the Customer Service Tent; I will personally make sure it is taken to the kitchen across the street. For years, the folks at St. Augustine's have fed many, many people 7 days a week.
**TFM t-shirts ($12) and aprons ($15) for sale at the Customer Service Tent!
EBT Proudly accepted! EBT Incentive Program still in effect. Participants who use more than $5 from their Ohio Direction Cards receive an extra $5 to spend at the market. EBT can be used to purchase food plants!
