Farmers’ Market Appreciation Day held, final farmers’ market approaching
On Saturday, Sept. 28, Osceola Farmers Market participated in a scheduled customer-appreciation day with music by Bruce Harris and a sign-up for a free basket of goodies donated by the vendors.
Because of the weather, Harris chose to not expose his instruments to the weather and promised to come back a different time. There are tables with many kinds of produce – tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, pumpkins, potatoes, apples, honey, herbs, crafts and baked products of all kinds.
Sherry Coyle of Osceola was the name was drawn Saturday, Sept. 28, to receive the customer-appreciation basket.
Summer ending and fall is bringing lots of nature's color. Also, Christmas is right around the corner, and the regular farmers' market that is open until Oct. 19 is a place to begin Christmas shopping.
On Nov. 9 and 23, and again on Dec. 7 and 14, the public is invited to the indoor market at Osceola Senior Center to see what there is for Christmas gifts. The indoor market will be held from 9 a.m. to noon. Clarke County Farmers' Market has a facebook that people may get on and follow the market news.
